AAA Prescription Savings supports heart health

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, so to prevent its onset and increase awareness of its effects, AAA Prescription Savings is participating in American Heart Month in February.

To lower your risk of developing heart disease, you can make healthy changes, including watching your weight, quitting smoking, controlling cholesterol, and drinking alcohol in moderation. Controlling and preventing risk factors also is important for people who already have heart disease.

Exercise plays an important part of a healthy lifestyle. From Feb. 1–March 31, to encourage AAA members to get out and walk, members will receive a free pedometer when requesting AAA Prescription Savings information at AAA members save an average of 24 percent on medications at nine out of 10 locations nationwide with AAA Prescription Savings.

The offer of one pedometer per household is good Feb. 1–March 31 or while supplies last. Allow 3 to 6 weeks for delivery. This is not insurance. Savings are only available at participating locations.
