Help ONA Prevent 1 Million
Heart Attacks and Strokes by 2017.
The Ohio Nurses Association has teamed up with The Ohio State University College of Nursing to become partners of the Million Hearts initiative – a national program aimed at preventing heart disease and stroke.
Heart attack and stroke are two of the leading causes of death in the U.S.
People of all ages, genders, races and ethnicities are at risk and certain groups (such as African Americans, women and those between the ages of 40 and 60) are at an even higher risk.
Unfortunately, many people who are at risk do not know it.
Our goal is to increase our communities’ knowledge of their risk and provide education on reducing that risk through free healthcare assessments.
