Heart Healthy

For more than 10 years, THV11 has been committed to raising awareness about heart disease and providing life-saving information.

Heart disease can affect anyone. However, it is the #1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. In fact, heart disease affects more women than men (Source: American Heart Association).

On the 11th of every month, THV11 will bring you stories focused on prevention, healthy lifestyle, medical breakthroughs and stories of hope. Our goal is to encourage Arkansans to take charge and be HEART HEALTHY.
