American Heart Month

February is American Heart Month. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, cardiovascular health remains a top priority in public health. In fact, those who are impacted by cardiovascular disease are at higher risk of contracting illnesses like COVID-19.

Take this month as an opportunity to focus on your cardiovascular health. Learn more about potential risk factors for cardiovascular disease, maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, and educate yourself on the difference between different cardiovascular and heart diseases. Here are a few ways you can participate in Heart Month:

  • Wear red on the first Friday of February
  • Stay up-to-date on heart screenings, such as blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Encourage your local representatives to be transparent about coronary heart disease statistics in your state
  • Join the #OurHearts movement on your social media platforms
