February is Heart Health Month

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.

So, join our “One for the Heart” Campaign this Heart Health Month, and make a difference for those important people in your life and your community by spreading the word about heart disease and the risk factors, modeling a heart-healthy lifestyle and encouraging those around you to know their family history and have their hearts checked.
Together we can save lives!
