If you’re looking for general information to point the right path on your journey to heart health, then you’ll want to review the general information topics.

Here you’ll find information on topics such as:

a. Warning signs

b. Sugar FAQs

c. Healthy recipes, including recipes for specific heart-related conditions such as low cholesterol, low sodium, diabetes-friendly, and heart friendly

d. Risk information, including diabetes, heart, high blood pressure, and more

e. Healthy Heart Quizzes on a wide variety of topics ranging from stroke, dining out, high blood pressure, heart disease, and more

In addition to English, the HeartHub is available in Spanish, Vietnamese, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. For more information on The HeartHub, visit http://www.hearthub.org/

Also, as you look for information, don’t forget to check out the resources available for heart patients on EmpowHer’s Heart & Blood page located at https://www.empowher.com/condition/heart-blood/

Here you’ll find an Advocacy Center, videos, up-to-date news, expert interviews, and a community of heart-minded sisters where you can ask questions and share your heart journey.

If you can’t find the resources you’re looking for, be certain to ask our heart guide, Christine Jeffries.
