App gets to the heart of lifestyle

The Heart and Stroke Foundation launched a new free mobile app to help Canadians make important lifestyle changes that could add years to their lives.

The 30 Days Mobile App gives users a customized risk profile showing the long-term impact of their daily health choices – then guides them to break bad habits and adopt a healthier lifestyle in 30 days or less.

The app was designed  to empower Canadians with the information and support they need to reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke.

It helps users inventory their health and risk factors by completing a mini-assessment.

They then prioritize the risk factors that are most important to them and highlight what motivates them most.
