With American Heart Health Month coming to a close for this year, Stamford Hospital continued educating the community Thursday.  The hospital's "lunch and learn" panel provided lunch and important information to the public.  

"There's so much we can do about heart disease," said Cusack.  

Dr. Evelyn Cusack is a cardiologist and director of community outreach at Stamford Hospital.  

"It's one of the few disease we have a lot of control about our destiny with the disease," said Cusack. "Unfortunately, things like cancer, some cancers just crop up.  Certain other disease we don't have a lot of control of."

She says heart disease is the number one killer of women and men.  She says diet and exercise is a cornerstone for prevention.  

"This is a largely man-made disease.  We and what we do and how we live our lives and the medications we take is the single most profound thing we can do to prevent it from happening," said Cusack.
