February is American Heart Month, which began in 1964. Again this year, Image One PR recognizes the special health observance with an annual creative poster, The Art of Loving Your Heart.™
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s a great time to think about those you love and raise awareness. Someone in the United States dies of heart disease every 85 seconds, according to the American Heart Association. The good news is 80 percent of heart disease and stroke can be prevented.
Recent efforts by the public and private sectors have put the spotlight on the negative impact of heart disease and stroke. Two national initiatives that play a vital role in fighting heart disease are MillionHearts® and Go Red for Women®.
With increased awareness and prevention, greater progress can be achieved and more lives saved. So this February, help get the word out about American Heart Month. Friday, February 5 is National Wear Red Day®.
