CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 4, 2015) - February is Heart Month and RCA Diagnostics (RCA) and Mayfair Diagnostics (MFD), Calgary's leading diagnostic medical imaging providers, are taking a stand for heart health by reminding Calgarians that there is more to consider this month than romance.

Heart disease is the leading killer of Canadian men and women and Health Canada estimates that 30 per cent of men and 31 per cent of women will eventually die of some form of cardiovascular disease. RCA and MFD are recommending a number of tips and habits that Calgarians can use to stay on track towards having a healthy heart:

  • Limit your sweets and treats.
  • Enjoy a nourishing, heart-healthy diet.
  • Strengthen your heart with regular exercise.
  • Other heart-healthy steps, which Dr. Stephen Valentine, Partner at RCA is available to share upon request.

"February is the perfect time to bring heart health to top of mind for Calgarians," said Dr. Stephen J. Valentine, MD, FRCPC, Co-Director of Mayfair Diagnostics and Partner at RCA Diagnostics. "It is our hope that by providing Calgarians with useful tips and information about how to maintain a healthy heart, that we will increase their awareness of preventative and diagnostic testing available in the city and encourage them to stay educated about heart health."
