After his heart attack, he changed his life completely, shunning erratic meals of fast food for three square meals that often include chicken, fish and vegetables. After 22 years of smoking, he quit cigarettes and started a daily walking routine.

“You always hear people say, ‘stop and smell the roses,’” Houck said. “Walking allows me to do just that and appreciate even the simplest things in life, like a breath of fresh air.”

Houck’s story is a reminder that changing your life can help save your life, especially when it comes to heart disease, said Richard Fish, CEO of Brown & Toland Physicians.

“We are proud to be honoring someone like Jeffrey who has made major strides through diet and exercise to improve his health, for the sake of himself and his family,” Fish said.

This is the eighth year that Brown & Toland Physicians has sponsored the Heart Walk in downtown San Francisco. Brown & Toland’s contributions support the American Heart Association’s vital cardiovascular disease research, advocacy and education.
