Health Minute: World Heart Day

Health Minute logo

WPSU’s Health Minute is a collaboration with Penn State’s Ross and Carol Nese College of Nursing.

People with cardiovascular disease are at a higher risk for severe symptoms when they contract COVID-19. Focusing on heart health has never been more important. The World Heart Federation spotlights the realities of accessing health care during a pandemic in its “three key pillars” of World Heart Day 2021.

The pillars are:

1. Equity of health services by ensuring internet access for everyone.

2. Prevention, by utilizing digital health tools and telehealth.

3. Digital community, to connect people for mental and physical well-being.

More information can be found at World Heart Federation.

Cheraine Stanford is the Content Strategy Director at WPSU, responsible for developing the station's original productions across digital, radio and television.
