Do you take your heart for granted? Most of us do, even though it’s the organ that supplies blood and oxygen to our bodies to keep us alive. In this interactive webinar, Michael Harper, Fitness Training Supervisor for Texas Department of Public Safety, will discuss the biggest risk factors for heart disease and explain what you can do to keep your heart healthy.

Just as you decide what kind of gas to put in your car and how to keep it running smoothly, you can make decisions about how you best fuel your body and your heart. You can also decide to get moving and Harper will give you tips on how to incorporate physical fitness into your daily routine.

Don’t take your heart for granted. Even small changes, like the ones Harper suggests, can help you keep your heart pumping.
