February is Heart Month! Happy Heart Month!
You take great care of patients. In fact, you take care of a lot of patients. According to the CDC, anywhere from 2.7 to 6.1 million people in the U.S. are affected by atrial fibrillation. In taking care of so many patients, sometimes that leaves little time to take care of you.
To celebrate heart month and all the great EP and Cath lab professionals out there we’re holding a drawing for a free Fitbit Alta. Enter here. To enter simply share your #1 tip for “taking care of you.” Tell us how you turn to exercise, a hobby, or playing with your kids to recharge your batteries. We’ll hold the drawing on Feb. 27. Then we will publish the top 10 ways to recharge your batteries in our Feb. 28th blog. Just think, one of your tips might be included. Sign up for our blog under "email updates" below so you don't miss it.
In the meantime, as you think about “taking care of you” join the SpringBoard team in committing to these heart healthy habits:
- Eat a healthy diet
- Watch your weight
- Be active most days
- Don’t smoke
- Limit alcohol use
Again, Happy Heart Month! Thanks for taking great care of heart patients! Don’t forget to enter our Fitbit drawing!
