If You Do Just ONE Thing to Reduce Your Risk ...

There's no two ways about it: The single most preventable risk factor for coronary heart disease in women is smoking. If you smoke, your risk of heart disease doubles. Each year more than 500,000 women in the U.S. have a heart attack. Heart attack will be the cause of death for about half of these women, and about half of those deaths are smoking-related.

Quitting smoking can be difficult, but it immediately lowers your risk of heart disease. It doesn't matter how much you smoke or how long you've been smoking, quitting provides immediate benefits. The first step is up to you. Commit to quit. Once you do that, we can help you stay on a path to better health.

We periodically offer smoking cessation classes. If you are interested in participating, please contact us.
