We are starting a new feature on the Alliance blog: Health Resource of the Week. Each week we'll share one of the many health resources we have that educate about chronic diseases that disproportionately affect older adults like heart disease, Alzheimer's, and cancer.  

For this debut entry, we feature a resource to test your knowledge about heart valve disease. More than five million Americans are diagnosed with valve disease each year. Valve diseases involve damage to one or more of the heart's valves and while some types are not serious, others can lead to major complications—including death.

We encourage you to test your knowledge about heart valve disease by taking our quiz. Click on the image below to take the quiz:

Take it now.

Once you are done taking the quiz, be sure to visit our brand new website that offers a comprehensive overview of the condition called LIving with Valve Disease. 

Check back to our blog often for more featured health resources.
