WiseCare Urgent & Primary Care Proud to Promote American Heart Month #heartmonth

To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, WiseCare Urgent & Primary Care is proudly participating in American Heart Month.

Our mission to help spread the work locally, as statistics show many Anne Arundel County residents are affected by heart disease.

Did you know heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. for both men and women? The good news is you have the power to prevent heart disease and stroke.

The First Step? Talk to Your WiseCare doctor.

Our medical experts at WiseCare are here if you need help kicking off 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.

Will you help us spread the word during American Heart Month?

WiseCare is now accepting new Primary Care (PCP) patients (residents new to our area, and those looking to change PCP providers with better appointment availability).

Remind your friends, family and co-workers WiseCare is open 365 days a year including nights and weekends – so now you have more scheduling options when it’s time for your annual physical, vaccinations and more.

 

To Lower Your Risk:

Other Factors:

Other factors such as thyroid disease or chemotherapy may also weaken the heart muscle. Further more, things you can’t control, like your family history, might increase your risk of heart disease.  But, leading a heart-healthy lifestyle might help you avoid or delay serious illness.

In honor of American Heart Month, call us today to set up a Primary Care appointment, request a physical, blood work, EKG, or a smoking and/or weight program consultation.

For More Information:

Be sure to visit the American Heart Association and the National Institute on Aging for online tips, videos and more focused on American Heart Month, plus health and science news specializing in cardiovascular health, including heart disease, stroke and healthy living.
