Photo Feature | Leading Through Example: Fitness For Heart Health
May 17, 2019
Cycling, running, tennis and hiking are some of the activities members enjoy in their pursuit of being fit. Many are taking this forward to motivate their patients and community to embrace being active and fit to improve their heart health and potentially reduce or eliminate the need for medications. They are leading cardio hikes, walk with a doc, and more.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Here's a few thousand words gathered through our call as we mark National Physical Fitness & Sports Month. What are you doing in your practice and community to lead your patients to be active and fit? Share your photos for our online photo gallery via #CardiologyMag.
