MONROE - In the month of February and beyond, residents of Green County can take advantage of opportunities for healthy hearts. Cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease and stroke, kill nearly one in three people in Wisconsin and represent the leading cause of death in women age 25 or older, according to a news release from the Wisconsin Community Health Fund. But 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases are preventable with education and action, the release said.
