AMERICAN HEART MONTH
February is American Heart Month. This month, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) marks American Heart Month by raising awareness about heart health and urging Americans to reduce their risk of developing heart disease. Here are a few ways you can get involved for American Heart Month:
– Set up an online support group with friends far and wide to encourage each other in your goals to manage your weight, eat healthier, quit smoking, or work out.
-Ask health care providers to give a presentation to your organization about ways to prevent heart disease.
-Work with local recreation and fitness centers to spread the word online about the importance of the physical activity to prevent heart disease.
