Join Affinity in Recognizing February as American Heart Month

February 1, 2019 by Molly Huff

 With Valentine’s Day and all that surrounds it, the “heart” of the matter sometimes gets lost in all the candy, card and flowers. But February is observed in the United States as American Heart Month, and across the country various efforts will be made by volunteers to raise funds toward research and education efforts regarding heart disease, as well as disseminate information regarding heart disease and strokes.

The American Heart Association (AHA) spearheaded efforts to develop the annual observance of American Heart Month, and since 1963, Congress has required that the president declare the month of February as American Heart Month.

February 4 is designated as National Wear Red Day. This Wednesday, people who support the AHA’s Go Red for Women initiative will wear red, to help raise awareness of heart disease. This annual practice was launched in 2004, and has not been limited to individuals turning out in crimson splendor on the 4th day of February: communities, companies, and city landmarks have expressed support by going red.

Visit www.GoRedForWomen.org. and join the thousands of women who are learning to reduce their personal risk for heart disease.

Take time this month to think about your heart and the hearts of those you love – beyond Valentine’s cards and roses – and do what you can to keep those around you heart healthy.
