<--- Return to National Health Observances

How do you know if your heart is healthy? Dr. Ryan shows Brutus Buckeye the 5 Numbers You Need to Know about heart health in this video from our friends at the Ross Heart Hospital. If you would like more resources about heart health, the Library for Health Information (LHI) can help you find trustworthy and reliable resources, including a blood pressure log you can print, and education materials about cholesterol, high blood pressure, keeping active and more.
