[ARCHIVED] February is American Heart Month


Focusing on your heart health has never been more important.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. But you can do a lot to protect your heart. Learn more about heart-healthy living.

Prioritizing your heart can help you avoid severe illness. People with poor cardiovascular health are also at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Learn how COVID-19 affects your heart.

Self-care is heart-health care. Practicing self-care can keep our hearts healthy. Being physically active, eating healthier foods, getting enough sleep, not smoking, and finding healthy ways to reduce stress can help prevent heart disease. And, when we take care of our hearts, we set an example for those around us to do the same. Join #OurHearts in action.  


Start Planning!
