It's all about prevention and that's why the Health District staff want to encourage residents in Wichita County to be proactive about keeping their hearts healthy. Heart Disease is the number one killer in Texas and stroke is number 3. The Health District, as part of the Texas Healthy Communities grant, develops media tools that share the message of Heart health and what to do if a stroke happens to you or your loved one. Health District staff also share important information about Suicide prevention/awareness and critically important phone numbers/text numbers so that more lives can be saved and those who think all is lost can receive hope and encouragement to live life to its fullest.
