Heart Association Partnership

 

KMRY Radio has teamed up with the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association because We our listeners!

  • Did you know there are 2500 heart attacks and 2100 strokes nationwide each day?
  • By the end of that day, half will not survive.

The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association want to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% while reducing deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20% by the year 2020. That means saving 863 lives each day! We’ll share information and life-saving messages throughout the next year to help reach these goals.

Eighty percent of risk factors for cardiovascular diseases are preventable by making healthy choices like eating right, exercising and not smoking.  We’ll help! In the meantime, put this important date on your calendar!

Here’s our message for the month of December:

When you’re having a heart attack, every second counts.  If you experience any of these symptoms, call 911 immediately: uncomfortable pressure, fullness or pain in the center of the chest; pain or discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw or stomach; shortness of breath with or before chest discomfort; and cold sweats, nausea or lightheadedness. For more information, visit the American Heart Association’s website at www.heart.org.
