Join the ‘Strong @ Heart’ email wellness challenge

By Pat Brinkman - OSU Extension

Heart disease is the number one cause of death for people in the United States. This fact does not come without hope.

There are many things we can do each day to improve heart health. Educators with Ohio State University Extension are ready to help. Join us for this challenge to learn how to limit stress, increase activity, and eat for a healthy heart.

This email challenge connects you with six weeks of tips, research, and resources to help lead a heart-healthy life. At the end of January, all participants will receive a welcome email. Then they will receive emails twice a week from Feb. 1 to March 15, 2021.

We will encourage you to follow tips that will reduce your risk of heart disease. Participants will have access to a tracking log and other resources available on our Live Healthy Live Well Blog and Facebook page. Register at
