The staff at Peninsula Home Care (PHC), a licensed and certified in home health care, have partnered with the Ocean Pines Chamber of Commerce and the Ocean Pines Police Department to celebrate Heart Health Month. They are doing so by sporting a red PHC hat. For the rest of February, PHC will be sharing facts on its Facebook page to increase awareness about cardiovascular health.
According to the Heart Foundation, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. It is also one of the most preventable. Making heart-healthy choices, knowing your family health history and the risk factors for heart disease, having regular check-ups and working with your physician to manage your health are all integral aspects of saving lives from this often silent killer.
Ocean Pines Police Chief David Massey is helping to make a difference in the Ocean Pines community by encouraging residents to have their hearts checked and commit to heart-healthy lives.
