Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. The good news? It is also one of the most preventable.
Make a difference in your community by spreading the word about strategies for preventing heart disease and encouraging those around you to have their hearts check and commit to heart-healthy lives.
Making heart-healthy choices, knowing your family health history and the risk factors for heart disease, having regular check-ups and working with your physician to manage your health are all integral aspects of saving lives from this often-silent killer.
How can YOU make a difference during Heart Health Month?
Wear red on National Wear Red Day TODAY Friday, February 2nd to increase awareness of heart disease. Then share a photo of you and your friends in your best red gear on social media with the hashtag #theheartfoundation.
