February Is American Heart Month
February is the month of Valentine’s Day and candy hearts, but did you know it’s also American Heart Month? American Heart Month was established in 1963 by President Lyndon B. Johnson, after Congress requested it. The US was becoming aware that heart health was important for the nation in many ways. Keeping your heart healthy is one of the best ways you can live a long, active, happy life. Heart disease is the number one killer of Americans, and the third leading killer of people worldwide.
