Dr. Travis Stork interviewed about heart health

 

Stork

 

Dear Readers: February is Heart Health Month. With this in mind, Dr. Travis Stork, co-host of the award winning talk show “The Doctors,” agreed to a telephone interview with four writers, so he could answer our questions about heart health. Dr. Stork is a practicing ER doctor and faculty physician in the emergency department at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn. 

When asked for one important change that he would suggest people make in their daily routine, Dr. Stork replied without hesitation, “walk at least 30 minutes a day.” He considers exercise one of the most important routes to good health.

I agree with his statement about the importance of exercise and a 30 minute walk would make a big and healthy change in our lives.
