February is National Heart Month

A time to reach out and remind everyone that heart disease is the number one killer of women and more deadly than all forms of cancer.  Friday, February 1st, is also the 10th National Wear Red Day, a part of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign that encourages widespread education on the effects of heart disease. Whether you choose to join the tens of thousands who will wear red or not, I encourage you take the time to learn the signs and symptoms; learn how to stop heart disease before it starts and implement strategies to impact the “ABCS” of heart disease. Even more importantly, I ask that you share this information with your family and friends.
