February is American Heart Month

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States – and in Wisconsin. In fact, 35% of all WI deaths are linked to cardiovascular disease.*

More startling statistics: Key risk factors for cardiovascular disease are high among WI residents.*

  • About 1 in 5 Wisconsin adults smoke.
  • Only 57% of WI adults fulfilled the recommended amount of 30 minutes or more of moderate physical activity on most days of the week.
  • Many health risk behavior patterns are established in youth.
