Over the past year and even these last few weeks inside, there’s been lots of stress and perhaps some unhealthy habits rearing their head—all things that can impact our health, especially our heart health. Did you know 1 in 3 women are diagnosed with heart disease? February is American Heart Month, and that’s why Dr. Julie Master, DO, FACC, and the Director of Noninvasive Cardiac Services at Monmouth Medical Center, will be teaching us how to give our hearts some extra special love this year. So make yourself comfortable, and then head over to our YouTube and Facebook pages on Tuesday at 8 PM. Send a quick hello in the comments, tell us how you’re doing— we’d love to hear from you. In the meantime, take a moment to answer our weekly poll, and you could be featured on NJMOM and News12 New Jersey this week.
