Our Commitment to Prevent Heart Disease
Cardiovascular disease, which affects the heart and blood vessels, is the No. 1 cause of death in the U.S. But, according to the American Heart Association, 80% of heart disease and stroke events may be prevented with lifestyle changes and education.
As a regional and national leader in heart care with outcomes second to none in Greater Cincinnati, we believe it’s part of our role to help prevent heart disease. That’s why the Florence Wormald Heart & Vascular Institute at St. Elizabeth set a goal: To work with our community to reduce heart-related deaths in Northern Kentucky 25% by the end of 2025 – what we call “25 by ’25.”
Reduce Your Risk for Heart Disease
