The prevalence of heart disease isn’t limited to just Lynchburg or Virginia. It’s the leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 370,000 people annually, according to the American Heart Association. When statistics for stroke and other cardiovascular diseases are combined with those for heart disease, the number of deaths attributable to one of those three causes rises to approximately one in three deaths in the U.S. — more than 800,000 people — in 2013, the most recent year for which data is currently available. Local efforts backed by national support are focused on lowering those deadly statistics.
