Healthy Conversations: Heart Health

February 1, 2013

More than 900,000 people across the country suffer heart attacks each year according to the Centers for Disease Control, and heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women. For this month’s Healthy Conversation, we’re talking heart health. KRCC's Andrea Chalfin is joined by Lieutenant Colonel Karl Brewer, an internist at Evans Army Community Hospital at Fort Carson. We start by talking about what happens when the heart ages.
