COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) – Phoebe Sumter Medical Center held its 3rd Annual Heart Walk on Feb. 8. They set up in six different locations in their community, where they taught locals about the importance of exercise and staying active.
PSMC holds the event to show that with a little activity, locals in their community can reverse some factors that contribute to heart disease.
According to PSMC, there are a few different ways you can reduce the risk of heart attacks or strokes, and make changes to improve heart health:
- Eat a well balanced, low salt diet
- Limit alcohol
- Enjoy regular physical activity
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Take your medications properly
