Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States among both men and women. There are lots of habits though that can improve heart health and reduce the likelihood of heart disease.

Reducing stress, getting enough sleep, limiting alcohol consumption, and quitting smoking can make a difference too. Learn more about American Heart Month and watch this video for a few tips about how small things you add into your daily routine can help you #MoveWithHeart.

 

Struggling to Afford Your Prescription Medications?

Unity Care NW patients have access to an on-site pharmacy at our Bellingham health center. Our Sliding Fee Discount Program can help our patients who struggle with high prescription drug costs, including expensive co-pays and deductibles. We also have other options available that may help reduce the cost of your prescription medications.

When our patients use our pharmacy, you can also benefit from improved care coordination between our pharmacy and your care team, making filling prescriptions safer and easier. You support non-profit health care too. When you fill your prescriptions at our pharmacy, the revenue is returned to the health center to support the growth and improvement of our health care services. Call our pharmacy staff at (360) 752-7406 to learn more.
