St. James Parish Hospital Kicks Off American Heart Month

« Return

In recognition of Heart Health Month, SJPH is promoting the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Life’s Simple 7 Campaign which highlights 7 tips for a healthier heart. CLICK HERE to see a SIMPLE 7 Flyer.

The AHA considers Life’s Simple 7 tips to be small steps to big changes. The tips include: Get Active, Manage Blood Pressure (new AHA guidelines), Control Cholesterol, Eat Better, Reduce Blood Sugar, Lose Weight and Stop Smoking.

When focusing on all 7, these tips may not seem so simple, but we encourage you to start small. By focusing on one or two tips at a time you are more likely to maintain better habits in the long-run. Additionally, when you follow one of the tips, you will likely have a positive impact on several more.

CLICK HERE to get your “heart score” and read below to see how we are celebrating and how you can win giveaways.

St. James Parish Hospital is sponsoring a Life’s Simple 7 Station in both the hospital and medical plaza lobbies. Patients joining us for services are encouraged to pick up various tools and education highlighting each of the Simple 7 tips, promotional items and heart healthy goodies. Each week different giveaways will be available (while supplies last).

As part of our Heart Health Campaign, we are kicking off a t-shirt contest. Any community member who is signed up for our e-newsletters by the end of American Heart Month (February 28th) will be entered to win a custom Heart Smart T-Shirt. We will randomly choose winners and email them to pick-up their prizes. If you already signed up and receive our e-newsletters, you are automatically in the drawing – no action required!
