Disease (CLRD) combined, according to the American Heart Association. Go Heart aims to address the leading causes of cardiovascular diseases through physical activity, nutrition education, and programs to reduce weight, high blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol.

“Many of the leading causes of cardiovascular disease can be addressed by taking simple steps in our everyday lives,” says Justin Henderson, director of Community Well-being at Adventist Health Glendale. “Go Heart includes a monthly calendar of free events to strengthen heart and mind, with social support to empower you, your friends, and family. We also help you discover local wellness resources through our partners, including exercise, nutrition, stress management, and smoking cessation. And we offer a self-assessment tool to help you track progress and reach your goals.”
