Brookdale to Host American Heart Month Webinar

The dangers of heart disease are well-known. Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally, and account for roughly one-third of all deaths in the United States.

February is American Heart Month, and Brookdale—the United States’ largest senior housing company—is honoring the month with an informational webinar. On Feb. 18, Dr. Kevin O’Neil, Brookdale’s  chief medical officer, will host the webinar, titled “Heart Health for Senior Women.” As the title indicates, O’Neil will discuss issues specifically related to women, and lifestyle changes that can minimize the risk for heart disease.

Cardiovascular diseases are a major problem for women, who account for a majority of the country’s heart-related deaths, and the risks only increase with age. According to the American Heart Association, an estimated 83.6 million American adults have a cardiovascular disease, with more than half of those being 60 or older. In those 80 and older, more than 87 percent of women have a cardiovascular disease.

Heart-related diseases are also the leading causes of death for men and women 65 and older.
