Medical Spotlight: Understanding Heart Health
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- February is National Heart Month, a time to stop and consider the fact that cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of American men and women.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that it costs the united states about 300 billion dollars each year in healthcare expenses, medications, and lost productivity.
In today's Medical Spotlight, TV20's Emily Burris sat down with Dr. Mark Tulli from the Cardiac and Vascular Institute to talk about why preventing cardiovascular disease is so important.
To spread awareness, TV20 and North Florida Regional Medical Center are partnering up to bring you a two-part series: 20 Hearts on TV20.
We'll follow 20 women as they take a comprehensive look at their heart health, and discuss ways everyone can lower their risk for cardiovascular disease.
