Where you live in Ontario could impact your heart heath.

The Canadian Medical Association Journal has put out a study saying that where you live in the province could have a lot to do with your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. North East Local Health Integration Network VP of Clinical Paul Preston says the North East region is one of four areas with the most cardiovascular health issues.

He says another factor is people’s ability to access to doctors.

Preston says the North East LHIN is trying to combat this by advocating for a healthier lifestyle as well as trying to get more doctors in the area.
