February is American Heart Month

Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the United States. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Unity Care NW is recognizing American Heart Month throughout the month of February.

A few healthy lifestyle changes can lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk:

  • Watch your weight.
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get active and eat healthy, including low-fat proteins, a variety of fruits and vegetables, and plenty of fiber.
  • If you smoke, call us at (360) 788-2660 to learn about our upcoming Smoking Cessation Class.

Like any muscle, your heart needs exercise to stay strong. Check out this short video for tips on how to add more activity to your day.

2019 Legislative Session is Underway

The Washington State Legislature is now in session, and community health centers across the state are making the case for strengthening health care services. This year’s goal is to protect the health care safety net, increase oral health capacity, and improve access to behavioral health services. Community health centers are working to ensure that the most vulnerable individuals in our state maintain access to health care and Medicaid coverage. We hope that legislators will continue to invest capital funds to further expand much-needed access to dental care and behavioral health services.
