How has heart disease affected your life? Do you know whether you’re at risk? How can you take steps to protect your heart?
As our previous post announced, February is Heart Month, and Friday, February 3 is National Wear Red Day®, which calls attention to heart disease as the number one killer of women.
To help raise awareness and build understanding, a special one-hour Twitter chat is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. CST this Friday, using the #HeartChat hashtag.
The chat will feature experts from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s The Heart Truth campaign (@TheHeartTruth), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Million Hearts initiative (@MillionHeartsUS), and the American Heart Association (@American_Heart).
Join the conversation by simply searching #HeartChat on Twitter, and adding that tag to your tweets.
We look forward to joining in this worthwhile discussion. Please help spread the word and encourage others to participate, too.
And we hope you'll check out our unofficial national anthem of Heart Month.
Finally, see below if you would like to view Senator Amy Klobuchar's opening address, where she reiterates that while heart disease can be deadly, it's largely preventable.
