Apple announced that February is Heart Month, and during the month there will be Activity Challenges on Apple Watch and heart health events in certain Apple Stores.
In recognition of heart health Apple will host special Today at Apple sessions called “Heart Health with Apple” at Apple retail stores in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. Celebrity fitness trainer Jeanette Jenkins, as well as members of Apple’s Fitness Technologies team, will be present.
Cardiovascular disease takes many forms and some are fully preventable through lifestyle changes like increased physical activity and better nutrition. It’s always great to see patients make those positive changes, especially with the help of Apple Watch.Sumbul Desai, MD, Apple VP of Health
