Protect Your Ticker

Heart disease is the number-one killer among Black women — and we are twice as likely to die from it than white women. So make heart-healthy choices: eat better, cut down on salt and exercise most days of the week. Also talk to your doctor about where your heart health stands now and how to make improvements.
