It’s a fact: every year, heart disease causes one in four deaths in the United States, making it the country’s leading killer.

But the good news is that heart disease can be prevented by making healthy lifestyle choices. February is American Heart Month and it’s a perfect time to focus on our hearts and see what steps we can take to live healthier. 

Ben Hunt, employee wellness coordinator at Missouri State University, shares the importance of wellness and exercise in protecting heart health.
