National Heart Health Month

February is “American Heart Month”, which began in 1963 to encourage us to take care of our hearts through a healthier diet and exercise.  Heart disease is the number one cause of death, followed by cancer.

February 7th is national “Wear Red for Women Day”.  As they have for the past 16 years, the American Heart Association has promoted awareness of cardiovascular disease and stroke; and, continues to encourage women to take steps to lower their heart disease risk.
