A message for our Wayne County neighbors

3 May

I recently received an email from a representative from Strong Hearts for New York, an organization working with the Cornell Cooperative Extension on a research project in Wayne County.  The study will examine the effects of the “Strong Hearts, Healthy Communities” program on the prevention of cardiovascular disease. The leading cause of death among adults in New York State, including women, is heart disease.

strong heartsThe program will begin either in the spring (May) or fall (November) of 2017, will meet twice per week for one hour each time, for 6 months. Participants will learn and practice good nutrition and physical activity for improved individual, family, and community health.

Project organizers are looking for women aged 40 and over who would like to be more active and achieve a healthier weight. Participants can earn up to $130 for completing the study, and will be given free blood draws and nutrition and physical activity assessments before and after the study.

Organizers are hoping to sign up at least 30 women from Wayne County to participate in the study. They still need about 15 more.

To read some more straightforward information about the study, to find out if you’re eligible, and to sign up, visit http://www.strongheartsnewyork.org.

    We live in Webster and my son is dying from heart failure. I sit at the hospital everyday and night and just watch him slip away and I can’t do a thing. People should be aware.
