Take Brain Health to Heart

May 5, 2017

There's an amazing connection between your brain and your heart, and research shows that the same risk factors that affect heart health also affect brain health. The SC Department of Health and Environmental Control is teaming up with the Alzheimer’s Association, American Hearth Association, and Eat Smart Move More SC to give you information, tools and resources about healthy eating, maintaining a healthy heart, ceasing tobacco use, and physical activity, as well as protecting your brain from injury.

The Brain Health campaign features a centralized SC DHEC Brain Health webpage, where visitors are encouraged to take the Brain Health Pledge and will be entered into a monthly drawing to win a Fitbit up until July 31, 2017.
