As Valentine’s Day approaches, health experts are reminding everyone to prioritize their heart health. Amada Roxana Gallardo, a cardiologist at Laredo Medical Center, emphasizes the importance of taking care of your heart, as it is often overlooked when considering overall well-being.
Gallardo encourages individuals between the ages of 20 and 39 to find a primary care provider and schedule annual check-ups. Many people may assume they are healthy because of their age, but family history can play a significant role in their health. Regular check-ups can provide insights into any potential issues that may need further attention.
The Laredo Medical Center offers programs that focus on heart health, providing resources and support for individuals looking to prioritize their cardiovascular well-being. For more information, individuals can contact the center at 956-796-5000. With the emphasis on heart health, the community is encouraged to take steps to ensure their cardiovascular well-being is a priority.
