Cardiovascular Health, Nutrition and Physical Activity
The Cardiovascular Health, Nutrition and Physical Activity Section is a heart disease and stroke prevention program from the Michigan Department of Community Health.
Vision: A heart-healthy and stroke-free Michigan.
Mission: Create a heart-healthy and stroke-free Michigan by increasing physical activity and healthy eating, reducing health disparities, and preventing and controlling other cardiovascular disease risk factors.
April is National Alcohol Awareness Month. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), drinking too much alcohol can increase the level of some fats in the blood, and it can also lead to high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke and sudden heart death. Drinking too much alcohol can also cause an increase in consuming too many calories, and consuming a high number of calories can lead to becoming overweight or obese and a higher risk of developing diabetes.
