Heart and blood vessel disease is our nation’s Number 1 killer. About half of the deaths from heart and blood vessel disease are from coronary heart disease, which includes heart attack. According to the American Heart Association, about 325,000 people a year die of coronary attack before they get to a hospital or emergency room. West Virginia ranks 4th among all states in the nation for heart disease death rates.
Please join us for this very important event!
