The Heart&Stroke Put Your Heart Into It! Tour is making a stop at Markville Shopping Centre!

    MARKHAM, ON, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - Shopping just got a lot heart healthier at
Markville Shopping Centre. The first-ever Heart&Stroke Put Your Heart into It!
Tour will be making an appearance on Thursday, January 17th until Sunday,
January 20th providing shoppers with a free, interactive learning experience
about their heart health.
    The Heart and Stroke Foundation presents its new 150-square foot
interactive heart health kiosk where shoppers can listen to the differences in
the sounds of healthy versus unhealthy hearts, look through viewfinders and
see first-hand the effects of unhealthy lifestyle choices on the heart and get
your blood pressure checked at our free blood pressure clinics overseen by
practical nursing students from Humber Institute of Technology & Advanced
    Shoppers will also get a chance to check out the Heart&Stroke Fitness
Wheel to learn just how much exercise they will need to burn off some of the
unhealthy food court choices they may have been contemplating for lunch.
    Participants will walk away with tons of heart healthy information to
help them and their families make smarter lifestyle choices. And they will
have the chance to speak to Heart&Stroke Ambassadors who will be on hand to
help the public learn more about improving their heart health and how to get
involved with the Foundation.

    The Heart and Stroke Foundation leads the way in protecting the health of
the millions of Canadians who are at risk of developing some form of heart
disease or stroke over their lifetime. Heart disease and stroke is responsible
for 1 in 3 Canadian deaths every year. With our aging population, it's
critical to understand the underlying causes of these diseases as this
knowledge leads to earlier diagnoses, better treatments and management
