Your heart is only the size of a fist, but it’s one of the most important muscles in your body. Arteries throughout the body supply blood to your heart. When those arteries are blocked, and blood flow to the heart is reduced, it causes CAD.

We can help you with tips and tools, like making good food choices and following up with your doctor to keep your CAD in check.

If you’re living with diabetes, you’re not alone. Diabetes happens when your body’s blood sugar (the amount of sugar in the blood) levels are usually higher than normal. It means there’s a problem making enough of a hormone called insulin, or your body isn’t using insulin like it should.

We can help you lower your risk of complications (problems or issues) and make your quality of life better.

We’re here to help you with simple steps for living with HIV/AIDS. Taking your medications the right way, eating healthy, staying active, and following your treatment plan can make a difference.
