The Knox County Health Department is wrapping up Heart Health Month by encouraging our community to sign up for KCHD’s free Heart Health Classes.

Making healthy lifestyle changes may feel overwhelming at first, but you are never too young or too old to start taking care of your heart health. That’s why the Knox County Health Department offers a free two-part series to help.

Work with a registered dietitian to learn about healthy eating and exercise, weight management, goal setting and more. Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women. But you can take steps now to protect your heart and stay healthy.

This class is designed for people with heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or those just wanting to learn about healthy eating and physical activity. Classes are scheduled for Thursdays, March 9 and 16, from 6-7 p.m. at the Knox County Health Department, 140 Dameron Avenue. If you are unable to attend, additional classes will be offered this fall.

By taking preventive measures, you can lower your risk of developing heart disease and a heart attack. You can also improve your overall health and well-being. Click here to sign up for the upcoming classes. For any questions, email [email protected] or call 865-215-5170.
