NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2018

NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women and men in the United States and accounts for over 600,000 deaths every year. While awareness of our risk is quite high, this disease is still taking so many lives. Adding to the issue, childhood obesity is on the rise leading to an increased heart risk for generations to come. This campaign will empower families to take the necessary precautions to improve their heart health and lifestyle while aiding those who are currently living with a heart condition.

The campaign educates readers on how to take a proactive approach to their heart health, from diet and exercise to understanding the intricacies of cardiovascular disease and the symptoms to look out for. Gracing the cover of "Family Health" is celebrity icon Barbra Streisand, cofounder of the Women's Heart Alliance. Streisand's passion for the cause began after producing "Yentl," a film that sparked a national conversation about the disparities between men and women in education. In her interview, she explains, "I had no idea the project would, in a roundabout way, lead me to advocate for women's heart health."

The print component of "Family Health: Heart Health Edition" is distributed within the September 28th regional circulation of USA Today, with a circulation of approximately 250,000 copies and an estimated readership of 750,000 within the Chicago, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, New York, and North Central Florida markets. The digital component is distributed nationally, through a vast social media strategy, and across a network of top new sites and partner outlets.
