February is American Heart Month



Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. 

To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, 
Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals is proudly participating in American Heart Month.

Each year, heart disease is responsible for 1 out of every 3 deaths in Wisconsin.

You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. 

To lower your risk:
  • Watch your weight.
  • Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get active and eat healthy.
