Get your American Heart Month Resources Here! Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, ODOM Health & Wellness is proudly participating in American Heart Month.
Locally, heart disease is the number 2 killer and stroke is the number 3 killer in Minnesota. Over 75% of Minnesotans have elevated risks for heart disease.
ODOM Health & Wellness is promoting heart healthy living and equipping the Twin Cities community with knowledge, resources and motivation to reduce risk of heart disease in the month of February for American Heart Month. Dr. John Odom says, “Minnesota has one of the lower overall percentages of cardiovascular disease in the U.S. but we still have a very high rate of Minnesotans living with elevated risks for heart disease and cardiac event. OHW is spending the month of February to not only show Minnesotans how to decrease their risk but also why they should take action to decrease their risk.”
