At the American Heart Association, we want to help everyone live longer, healthier lives so you can enjoy all of life’s precious moments. And we know that starts with taking care of your health. American Heart Month, a federally designated event, is a great way to remind Americans to focus on their hearts and encourage them to get their families, friends and communities involved. Together, we can build a culture of health where making the healthy choice is the easy choice. Why? Because Life is Why.
Raise awareness for heart disease - the No. 1 killer of Americans. Be a part of the movement and show our community your commitment to ending heart disease by participating in our local Heart Month events:
