Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors

Change Your Risk, Change Your Life

Heart disease is America's #1 killer, but it doesn't have to be. Here's what you can do to change your risk of heart attack and stroke.

Every year, more than 600,000 Americans die from cardiovascular disease, a condition that is largely preventable. At MDVIP, we want to help change that. That's why we've declared 2019 the Year of Cardiovascular Health, and we want to help you to take charge of your heart health and Be Strong-Hearted.

We've created this Be Strong-Hearted Inspiration Center for you to learn more about your heart disease risk and find tools that can help change it — from a discussion guide you can use with your doctor to dozens of articles about cardiovascular disease.

You may think you're already doing enough to lower your risk of heart attack and stroke, but there's probably more you can do. Start by taking our Heart Attack IQ quiz. Then come back and explore. Each month we'll upload new content along with tools you can use to engage in a deeper conversation about this deadly disease with your doctor. We want you to Be Strong-Hearted and that journey starts here!
