In 2015, an estimated 43 million adults 60 years or older had one or more types of Cardiovascular disease.

Maintaining a heart healthy lifestyle as we age becomes increasingly more important in order to live a good a life.

“Heart health is so important. Some risk factors for coronary artery disease include high cholesterol, smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, physical inactivity and diabetes,” said Dr. Cheryl Jacobs of Iora Primary Care. 
“At Iora Primary Care, we spend the time and work closely with patients in order to understand and help them meet their goals to either manage or prevent risk factors.”

February marks National Heart Health Month and Iora Primary Care’s Shoreline practice is highlighting the importance of heart-healthy eating choices and exercise for older adults by hosting a Valentine’s Day event dedicated to heart health.

This free, educational event will also provide a forum for attendees to socialize with community members and build relationships.

Wednesday, February 15, 10am - 12pm at Iora Primary Care, 15214 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline 98133.

Both patients and community members are encouraged to attend.

RSVP by calling Brian Aylward at 206-518-9032 or emailing: brian.aylward@ioraprimarycare.com.
