Heart Health Matters

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the nation's number one killer, responsible for one in four deaths each year in the United States.

In celebration of American Heart Month and to address the prevalence of heart disease in our community, we have partnered with Orlando Health's Heart Institute to host a healthy eating seminar on Saturday, Feb. 21 at the Downtown YMCA.

From asparagus to sweet potatoes, every bite of heart-healthy foods provides necessary nutrients to aid in the prevention of heart disease. Join us and sample heart-healthy treats as you enjoy an informative panel discussion on why heart health matters.
