Congressman Paulsen Speaks about American Heart Month

Happy Wear Red Day Minnesota!

Check out this video of Congressman Erik Paulsen talk about American Heart Month.

February is American Heart Month; a month to spread awareness about the importance of heart health. Rep. Erik Paulsen (MN-03) took time to remind Minnesotans that there are many simple steps we can take to prevent heart disease such as eating healthy, exercising regularly, and not smoking. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for all Americans, and accounts for $1 out of every $6 dollars spent on health care.
