Traditionally the month for lovers and all things heart-related, because of St. Valentine’s Day on the 14th, the month of February is also designated as American Heart Month by the American Heart Association.
It serves as a good reminder for everyone to take care of their cardiovascular health.
The annual observance began in 1963 to encourage Americans to join the battle against heart disease. A presidential proclamation pays tribute each year to researchers, physicians, public health professionals and volunteers for their tireless efforts in preventing, treating and researching heart disease.
