Did you know your heart beats about 115,000 times each day, pumping over 2,000 gallons of blood?


A healthy heart is a critical component of overall good health. Embracing a healthy lifestyle can prevent heart disease and lower your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. You are never too young or too old focus on your heart health.


The Knox County Health Department (KCHD) will be hosting a new, free, community class — a three-part series covering heart-healthy eating, physical activity, and strategies for a healthier lifestyle (e.g. goal setting and problem solving).


Classes are on Mondays, July 19, 26, and Aug. 2, from 6-7:30 p.m. via Zoom.


Anyone interested in learning more about heart health is welcome to attend.


If you have any questions or would like to sign up, call 215-5170 or email Mikaela.Mciver@knoxcounty.org.
