Your Partner in Health for January 2013
The Heart of the Community
The new year has arrived and in just a few weeks, it will be February -- American Heart Month. We’ll kick off Heart Month with our ninth Annual Women and Heart: Wine, Cheese and Chocolate, a fun evening that happens to have a serious message -- heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. It’s important for women to take
charge of their heart health. As American Heart Month approaches, I would like to take a moment to mention a message that all of us Port Huron Hospital hope you will keep in mind. If you or someone you are with is experiencing any of the symptoms of a heart attack, it’s very important to call 911. You need to get to the nearest emergency center. Don’t hesitate and don’t try to drive yourself. The sooner you get medical attention, the less likely you are to suffer permanent heart muscle damage. Remember this statement: Stay Alive -- Don’t Drive. Call 911! ~Thomas DeFauw, President and Chief Executive Officer
