American Heart Month

February is American Heart Month, a time to raise awareness about heart disease and the steps we can take to prevent it. At Niobrara Community Hospital & Clinic, we understand the importance of heart health and are committed to providing our community with the resources and education they need to take care of their hearts.

One of the most important things you can do for your heart is to know your numbers. This includes your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar levels. Regular screenings and check-ups with your doctor can help you keep track of these numbers and make any necessary lifestyle changes to improve them. In addition, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial for heart health: eat a nutritious diet, get regular exercise, manage stress, and
not smoke.

We encourage everyone to take advantage of any heart-health resources available here in Niobrara County and take care of their tickers not only this month, but all year round! Remember, the best way to prevent heart disease is to take care of your heart today.
