Watch 'The Young and the Restless' Star Jess Walton's Heart Disease PSA

Did you know that cardiovascular diseases cause one in three women's deaths each year, killing approximately one woman every minute? February is American Heart Month, and CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless worked with the American Heart Association on a new storyline about women's heart disease, which is the number one killer of women in the United States.

In Thursday's episode of Y&R, original character Jill Abbott Atkinson (now played by Daytime Emmy winner Jess Walton) was hospitalized after suffering a heart attack.

Following the episode, a “CBS Cares” PSA featuring Jess Walton ran, encouraging viewers to visit American Heart Association’s to learn how to manage risks and recognize the warning signs of a heart attack.

Watch the PSA below.
