After a stroke or heart disease diagnosis, you probably had a lot of questions about exercising again. During the #NationalWalkingDay discussion for heart and stroke survivors on our Support Network, we’ll talk about what’s “normal” when it comes to exercising again and you’ll get to ask a panel of doctors from across the country questions you have about physical activity. #AHALaceUp #LifeIsWhy http://spr.ly/6269NKy3

April 1 is #NationalWalkingDay and we’re hosting an all-day discussion on physical activity after a heart event or stroke. We hope you’ll join survivors, family and friends, as well as a panel of doctors from around the country for a great chat on an important topic. #AHALaceUp #LifeIsWhy http://spr.ly/6269NKGb

If you have #AFib, you are at risk for stroke and may have additional risk factors as well. But -- good news -- you can do a lot to offset your risks and improve your overall heart health, too, with small changes and tiny steps in the right direction. Give yourself the best odds for a healthier, happier life. http://spr.ly/6263NJ5Z
