Heart Attack Prevention Graphic

Ahead of the 2016 NFL Super Bowl, the Houston Health Department is partnering with Harris Health System and Baylor College of Medicine to host an event on Feb. 6 to educate fans on ways to avoid heart attacks resulting from high levels of stress, bad eating and an exciting game.

"Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women," says Dr. Nasser Lakkis, chief, Cardiology, Harris Health's Ben Taub Hospital and professor, Baylor College of Medicine. "Our goal is to increase awareness of the signs and symptoms of heart attacks and healthy life style changes that can lower the risk for developing a heart attack."
The event is Houston's first Heart Attack Prevention Kickoff and will be from 8 a.m. to noon, Feb. 6, at the McGovern Centennial and Cherie Flores from 8 a.m. to noon, Feb. 6, at the McGovern Centennial and Cherie Flores Pavilion (Hermann Park), 1500 Herman Drive, Houston, Texas 77004. The event will include a heart healthy cooking demonstration, one-on-one conversations with cardiologists, blood pressure and cholesterol screening, and a healthy breakfast.
