"We're not saying women have to have perfect bodies like the ac- tresses and models they see on television. Most often that kind of weight-reduction program is dan- gerous," said Philadelphia cardi- ologist and American Heart Asso- ciation (AHA) volunteer, Veroni- ca Covalesky, M.D. "What we are saying is that women have to get up, get healthy and move, move, move. Obesity is a major risk factor for heart dis- ease," said Colvalesky. Participants can sign up for Choose to Move by calling 888-. MY-HEART, and they will auto- matically receive information that includes a brochure with ques- tions for them to answer. After they have completed and returned the questionnaire to the AHA, each person will receive a program handbook that contains health and fitness tips, resource lists and weekly score sheets. For every three weeks of the program that is completed, participants will receive an incentive gift, ranging from workout supplies to cook- books.
