The City of New Berlin's Mayor David Ament has proclaimed February American Heart Month! See the official proclamation at this link:

Consider these facts:

·       Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United  States, and is manifested in cardiovascular disease including coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke and high blood pressure;

·       Although heart disease is one of our nation’s most costly and widespread health problems, it is also among the most preventable;

·       Biometric Wellness Screenings and “Knowing Your Numbers” are a great first step in controlling heart disease and improving the quality of our health, therefore Screenings are encouraged for all;

·       Since obesity is a leading risk factor for heart disease, good nutrition and physical activity are crucial for ourselves and for all of our families; and

·       Heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the No. 1 cause of death in American women.
