NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone ‘Delivers’ Heart Health News
Scoring the most career points – 36,928 to be exact – in NBA history, there’s no doubt that Karl Malone has had an amazing career to say the least, but these days, the “mailman” is busy delivering off the court. With his new public awareness campaign, “Karl Delivers For You,” the two-time Olympic gold medalist and father of seven is using his celebritydom to spread the word about heart disease, the #1 cause of death in the U.S., especially for African-American women.
Earlier this year, Malone partnered with AstraZeneca to promote TOPROL-XL Direct, a program that delivers high blood pressure medicine directly to your home for only $10 a month.
