Health Minute: World Heart Day
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.
