February is American Heart Month Raise awareness about heart health and urge those around you to prevent heart disease. #OurHearts are healthier together. This is partly because the conditions that lead to heart disease are happening at younger ages. February is Heart Month, the perfect time to learn about your risk for heart disease and the steps you need to take now to help your heart. Heart disease—and the conditions that lead to it—can happen at any age. High rates of obesity and high blood pressure among younger people (ages 35-64) are putting them at risk.

Each February, NHLBI and The Heart Truth ® celebrate American Heart Month by motivating Americans to adopt healthy lifestyles to prevent heart disease. Research shows that we’re more successful at meeting personal health goals when we join forces with others. < Back To American Heart Month #OurHearts Publications Health and community professionals can use the materials in this toolkit to raise awareness about heart health and the importance of social support for meeting health goals. On the first Friday of every February, which is designated as American Heart Month, the nation comes together, igniting a wave of red from coast to coast.

From landmarks to news anchors and neighborhoods to online communities; this annual groundswell unites millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke. Join NHLBI, The Heart Truth, and organizations around the country on National Wear Red Day, celebrated each year on the first Friday in February, to bring greater attention to heart disease awareness as the leading cause of death for Americans. Use the poster, stickers, and social media resources below to promote Wear Red Day in your community. American Heart Month 2020: High Blood Pressure Control—We’ve Got This!

Uncontrolled high blood pressure, or hypertension, is dangerous and far too common. In fact, 1 of 3 adults in the United States has the condition. 1 High blood pressure usually has no signs or symptoms, but it does have consequences. The only way to know if you’re at risk for high blood pressure is to know your numbers. The American Heart Association’s AFib content and awareness campaign is made possible with a grant from BMS-Pfizer. *All health/medical information on this website has been reviewed and approved by the American Heart Association, based on scientific research and American Heart Association guidelines.

Heart Health Awareness During American Heart Month in February and throughout the year, hospitals, schools, health departments, and corporations can offer educational and inspirational products to employees and community members, encouraging heart health awareness and heart attack prevention tactics for women and men. National Health Observances (NHOs) are special days, weeks, or months dedicated to raising awareness about important health topics.
