A Note from Abbagail
February is American Heart Month – a time to focus on our cardiovascular health. The heart is responsible for a lot of jobs in our body: pumping blood throughout our body and reaching all our organs and other tissues. Not only does our heart circulate the blood supply and provide oxygen systematically to our organs, our heart also removes toxins, gases, hormones, and waste from our body. Passing through the whole metabolic process blood is returned to be recirculated into our bodies. This whole and complete process is important.
I am also starting classes to be a “Health Coach for Hypertension Control (HCHC).” This is a structured program consisting of 8 ninety-minute sessions. The aim of HCHC is to improve hypertension self-management through small group educational sessions and support offered by a trained Health Coach. Increasing knowledge about hypertension self-management; Increasing stage of readiness to make lifestyle changes required for successful self-management; Promoting behavior changes in nutrition, physical activity, stress management, tobacco use, and medication management. This amazing opportunity is made available to Shelby Senior Services through the Blue River Community Foundation Community Grant. Thank you!
