TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - The following B-Roll is available by Video On-Demand web download:

STORY SUMMARY:

The Heart and Stroke Foundation, in partnership with Desjardins Financial Security, is launching a new free mobile app to help Canadians make important lifestyle changes that could add healthy years to their lives.

The 30 Days Mobile App gives users a customized risk profile showing the long-term impact of their daily health choices - then guides them to break bad habits and adopt a healthier lifestyle in 30 days or less.

This app was designed and developed by leading Canadian experts to empower Canadians with the information and support they need to reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke.

It helps users inventory their health and risk factors by completing a mini-assessment. They then prioritize the risk factors that are most important to them and highlight what motivates them most.

Every day the 30 Days Mobile App delivers a focused, easy-to-do challenge that channels the user's motivators, putting them on the path to a healthier lifestyle.
