As part of Quest Corporation of America’s (QCA) mission to promote healthier lives, QCA supports the American Heart Association’s (AHA) goal to improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent, and reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent, all by the year 2020. Did you know March is National Nutrition month? QCA wants to remind you to look for the AHA’s heart-check mark when grocery shopping. It is assurance the food is low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Making healthy food choices including controlling portion sizes and reading food labels is essential to maintaining a proper body weight and preventing or managing diabetes. Don’t forget to mark your calendar annually for National Start Walking Day – always the first Wednesday of April. Ditch your desk and walk for 30 minutes.
