Podcast -Tobacco and Heart Health
The NBATC and the Heart & Stroke Foundation of New Brunswick were invited to talk about Tobacco and Heart Health during a Healthy Eating and Physical Coalition (HEPAC) Q&A podcast.

Podcasts are like radio shows but they can be listened to on your schedule - whenever you want! Many people like to listen to podcasts while out for a walk or on their daily commute to work in the car or bus. Podcasts are a great way to access information and learn new things. They are also fun to listen to just for entertainment. Once you download a podcast, you can either listen to it on your computer or take it with you by transferring it to a portable digital media player or using a podcast app on your phone.

We also invite you to subscribe to HEPAC's very popular Q&A podcast series to listen to previous podcasts and be notified of new podcasts that are produced!
New Brunswick Health Council Infographic on Heart Health

According to statistics presented in this infographic, New Brunswick has higher rates of avoidable deaths from preventable causes than the national average. Heart disease ranks number 2 among them. The infographic presents tips on what we can do to prevent heart disease and stroke in our communities. One of the action items people can take to lower the risk of heart disease and stroke is, of course, quitting smoking.
