World Heard Day 2018 – Time to promise….My Heart, Your Heart, Our Heart

World Heard Day 2018, the Professional-Scientific Conference with title: “Promotion of Healthy Lifestyle in Macedonia” was organized by “HEPA Macedonia” National Organization for the promotion of Health-Enhancing Physical Activity in collaboration with the European week of sport, State Agency for Youth and Sport, on 19 September 2018 in Skopje. The participants were medical professionals, sports pedagogues, sport’s authorities from sport’s federations, employers and individuals. Information material with abstracts and presentations for healthy lifestyle and cardiovascular wellness was available to all participants.
Its known that at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be avoided if the main risk factors: smoking, unhealthy nutritition and physical inactivity are contolled.
This a time to promise as an individual to cook and eat more healthily, to do more exercise and encourage your children to be more active, to say no to smoking and help your loved ones to stop. A
promise as a healthcare professional to save more lives. A promise as a politician to implement an NCD action plan.
Conference on World Heart Day, 2018 was focused on Healthy Lifestyle and a promise for my heart, for your heart, for all our hearts including the message and Go Red for Women.
