As a Cardiologist, there are certain facts that are frequently referenced in our industry:
- Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in the United States
- By 2020, 40% of men and 43% of women will be obese and diabetic
Introducing lifestyle modifications into your daily routine can help prevent diabetes and heart disease as well as complications resulting from them.
Membership to CMI or any similar institution is an investment in your health. I encourage you to think about what modifications you can make such as healthy eating, smoking cessation and exercise to try and prevent the onset of disease and embody the concept of “Wellness”.
