New Initiative Aims to Reduce Repeat Heart Attacks

New Initiative Aims to Reduce Repeat Heart Attacks

(ProActive Sports Rehab offers a weekly column promoting health, fitness and physical therapy. Please be sure to check back each week for a new topic!)

Every 42 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a heart attack — but you needn’t be among them. 

Consider this: Julie Kubala was one of those statistics. She’s working now to ensure she doesn’t become a different stat — about 21 percent of women and 17 percent of men age 45 and older will have another heart attack within five years of their first one.

To help, the American Heart Association (AHA) launched a new educational campaign aimed at reducing the number of repeat or recurrent heart attacks by arming survivors with simple but effective steps.
