February is American Heart Month: Tending to heart health may keep dementia at bay

Updated: Oct 5, 2022

In recognition of American Heart Month, take time to tend to your heart.


A recently concluded study spanning 20 years (1987-2017) found that heart health may be linked to lowering the risk for dementia later in life. According to the study, “Middle-aged study participants who had heart disease risks such as high blood pressure, smoking or diabetes when the study began were more at risk for developing dementia later.” You can read more at the American Heart Association’s website: https://www.heart.org/en/news/2018/07/12/tending-to-heart-health-may-keep-dementia-at-bay


And please remember to donate blood. With the strong winter we’ve been having in the NW, many blood supplies are at critically low levels. https://www.bloodworksnw.org/donate/locations
