    With the start of American Heart Month, SecondsCount is encouraging everyone to get to know the risk factors for cardiovascular disease.  There are risk factors you can’t control – like your age and your family history; and then there are risk factors you may be able to manage, especially if you team up with your healthcare providers and work on them together.  Whether you want to manage your heart disease or you want to prevent it in the first place, increasing your knowledge of risk factors is the heart-smart place to start.
