MAIN NEWS
A healthy heart makes for a healthier life
We quite often hear - especially when February and National Heart Health Month rolls around - that we should all be making our heart health a priority.

Contact sports and skin conditions
We are in the middle of the high school wrestling season. The wrestling season can be a busy time for licensed athletic trainers (LATs). Due to the amount of physical contact between athletes, wrestling is the most common sport for skin conditions to occur. LATs are one of the first lines of defense when it comes to skin infections. Athletic trainers have knowledge in preventing, assessing, treating, and educating athletes regarding skin conditions.

Run safely this winter
It is that time of year when the temperature has dropped and the days are shorter. Because of this, many people believe it means the morning and evening outdoor runs and walks need to come to an end. This can be very far from the truth for many people. Because of the darkness, though, some guidelines must be followed for safe running or walking outdoors.

Fort HealthCare Therapy & Sport Center is offering Early Season Golf Tactics instruction to help keep golfers conditioned for their sport through the winter. The class is five weeks long, running on Wednesdays, March 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the center. Class size is limited; Registration required.

However, it’s important when we find ourselves out to eat for family obligations, meetings, or social gatherings, that we know how to keep from neglecting our health. Healthful food choices is a huge way that we can take control of our cardiovascular health.
