Heartbeat Report: Men’s Health Month

News

June is Men’s Health Month.  And since Heart Disease is the leading cause of death among American men, we’re sharing tips from the experts with The Cardiovascular Institute of the South to help the men in our lives get and stay healthy.

#1. Get moving! 
Doctors recommend 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week.  That’s 30 minutes, five days a week…or if you prefer, 75 minutes of high intensity exercise in that same time period.

Whatever you do, do something!  Start slowly and build on your exercise regimen.

Cardiovascular Institute of the South was founded in 1983 by Dr. Craig Walker, who first established the company as a one-physician practice in Houma, Louisiana. Driven by a desire to serve and heal people in his community, Dr. Walker envisioned CIS as a leader in the development of new techniques and technologies in the treatment of both coronary and peripheral artery diseases.

Today, CIS continues to grow and expand to multiple locations striving to make the most advanced cardiovascular care accessible to a wide spectrum of communities across Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi. We believe that our unwavering dedication to the CIS mission of providing the highest quality cardiovascular care has truly been the cornerstone of this successful growth.
