Posted 2/19/2018

PMA Medical Specialists’ on-going commitment to cardiovascular disease awareness includes partnering with The Heart Truth to educate patients and their families, as well as the communities it serves, on the importance of living a heart healthy lifestyle.

“Cardiovascular disease, which includes stroke, is the number one killer in women - more than all forms of cancer combined; killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds,” stated Kathleen Magness, MD. “However,we are making great strides to create an awareness that demonstrates how following a heart healthy lifestyle greatly reduces the risk of Cardiovascular disease.”

The National Go Red for Women Day was February 2, however PMA Medical Specialists chose to celebrate on February 9, allowing staff to show their Philadelphia Eagles pride on February 2. In addition to the designated Go Red Day, the multi-specialty group developed a month-long heart healthy campaign that includes risk factor topics for both men and women – high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes,sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and more!
