Episode #342 Discussing Heart Disease, With Communities

On This Episode Of The Public Health Epidemiology Conversations (PHEC) Podcast


Although February is American Heart Month, a time when the nation spotlights heart disease, it is an important topic to highlight all year long. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. In most cases, heart disease is preventable but there are often several barriers for many communities to access and easy-to-understand resources and information on the topic. We recently focused on this topic in our Public Health Roundtable discussion on LinkedIn. In this episode, we share that insightful discussion and tell you how you can join the conversation. Listen in as Dr. Huntley and Ericka Horne, community engagement expert, discuss strategies for hosting this topic within the communities you serve. Hear more ways to make resources for heart-healthy living more accessible, the value of meeting communities where they are, plus so much more!
