Press play to hear a Public Service Announcement from the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.

Hello, I'm Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson.

The Atlantic County Division of Public Health is recognizing February as American Heart Month by offering heart healthy screenings to residents.

Do you know your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers? Uncontrolled high blood pressure is a leading cause of heart disease and stroke.

In fact, people with high blood pressure are 4 times more likely to die from a stroke and 3 times more likely to die from heart disease.

The Division of Public Health's Live Stronger, Longer program offers screenings for residents age 18 and older including blood pressure and cholesterol as well as health counseling in both Northfield and Hammonton. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 609-645-5933. That number again is 609-645-5933.

Community health presentations are also available.

Remember…a healthy heart and a healthy life go hand in hand.

This is Denny Levinson for the Atlantic County Division of Public Health: working for healthy people and healthy communities.
