St. Mary's Health released its music video "Be Heart Smart. Know the Facts. Choose to Act." It is available at www.stmarys.org/beheartsmart.
After viewing each of the four performances, visitors to the site can vote for their favorite and enter to win one of several prizes, including a $100 Visa gift card. They can vote up to once per day to increase their chances of winning. By voting, they are also taking a pledge to "be heart smart" in their own lives. The contest will end on January 31st and the winners will be announced on February 4th, during American Heart Month.
The songs emphasize a healthy diet, physical activity, and smoking cessation. They also discuss some of the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and the need to take immediate action if you or someone you love experiences those symptoms.
We urge everyone to join us in sharing the videos on social media (and telling the world which performance is their favorite) - and Twitter users are encouraged to include a #BeHeartSmart hashtag in their tweets, too!
