Heard that sitting is the new smoking? A new study suggests that #walking for 2 mins every hour will help! http://nyti.ms/1A2q2YR
Even a few minutes per hour of moving instead of remaining in a chair might substantially reduce the risk of premature death.

African-American women can be at risk of #heartdisease even if they don't have #metabolicsyndrome. via @NPRHealth http://n.pr/1Hw7gZB
Black women are more likely to have heart disease with just a few metabolic risk factors, a study finds. That's not the case for white women. Being obese seems to affect black women more, too.

Story
Tagline
Reducing heart disease & advancing heart health through research, education and improved patient care.
Introduction
The Texas Heart Institute (THI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the devastating toll of cardiovascular disease through innovative and progressive programs in research, education and improved patient care.

Company Overview

Texas Heart Institute was founded by Dr. Denton A. Cooley in 1962. Its location in and affiliations with St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital and Texas Children's Hospital assured that all age groups would be treated and freed the Institute of the burden of financing a health care facility. 

THI is a nonprofit organization in the truest sense. Unlike most institutions that have a source of operating revenue, Texas Heart Institute relies solely on government grants, research contracts and, above all, philanthropy. In fact, donations from grateful patients, foundations, corporations, physicians, and the general public account for more than half of the Institute's annual operating budget.
