In basketball, everyone plays offense and defense. I'm here to urge you to do the same. Before Coronavirus came to the Midwest, heart disease was the leading cause of death for Nebraskans. It still poses the greatest threat, because people with heart disease, like me, are more likely to experience life-threatening complications of COVID-19. While we're on defense against this virus, go on the offensive for your heart. Practice healthy habits and get regular check ups. It's a winning strategy. Stay safe, be well and Go Big Red!
