Healthy Hearts for our Rural Communities

Nearly one in three adults – over eight million Californians – are living with at least one of the most common forms of cardiovascular disease which are heart disease, heart failure, stroke, or hypertension (high blood pressure). 

In San Diego County, heart disease is the second leading cause of death in East Region and unincorporated areas.  

According to the American Heart Association, people who live in rural communities live an average of three years fewer than urban counterparts and have a 40% higher likelihood of developing heart disease (14.2%) compared with their counterparts in small metropolitan (11.2%) and urban (9.9%) areas, a gap that has grown over the past decade. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also demonstrates that Americans living in rural areas have a higher risk of heart disease and stroke
