Community Members: Each February, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) marks American Heart Month by raising awareness about heart health and urging Americans to reduce their risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease. Although death rates for cardiovascular disease have decreased by more than 70 percent in the last 50 years, more work needs to be done—and you can help!
There are dozens of ways to spread heart health messages during February and beyond. Here are just a few: 25 Ways To Take Part in Heart Month

What better way to celebrate American Heart Month than the opportunity to provide preventative heart screenings to students! February and March we will be serving the middle and high school students of the Clay County School District.
And, with Valentine's Day around the corner, why not change things up a bit this year?? According to the National Retail Federation, only about 55% of Americans celebrate Valentine’s Day, BUT those who do will shell out an average of $146.84. (Source: Money) For ONLY $1 per week for a year - less than half of what the average person will spend on Valentine's Day alone - you could sponsor a potentially life-saving heart screening for one child. Nothing says love like ensuring a child's heart is healthy. Protect a child's heart today by clicking here!
All the best to you in this love-filled season!
