American Heart Month 


February is American Heart Month, a time to draw attention to heart disease - America's number one killer - and recognize the research and education that helps raise awareness of risk factors and decrease death rates. The American Heart Association kicked off the month with its National Wear Red Day on Friday, Feb. 4, part of its  Go Red for Women movement to promote awareness of heart disease in women by encouraging people to wear red. This month, we also recognize the importance of developing tools that will increase survival rates from heart attacks and cardiac arrest. One in three American adults has one or more types of cardiovascular disease. More than half of those directly affected by heart disease are under the age of 60.
