Join NPACE in celebrating American Heart Month. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and The Heart Truth® are promoting awareness about heart health and inspiring people to prevent heart disease. This year’s theme, “#OurHearts are Healthier Together,” emphasizes the importance of people working together to make heart healthy lifestyle changes. Kick off the month by celebrating National Wear Red Day tomorrow, Friday, February 7th to bring greater attention to heart disease as the leading cause of death in the U.S. Use the Wear Red Day resources to help spread the word and get others to join you. Post photos of your events and other community activities, as well as your family, friends, and colleagues wearing red on social media using #OurHearts. Research shows that strong social support makes getting regular physical activity, eating healthier, reaching and maintaining a healthy weight, and quitting smoking, easier. Heart health also improves when we manage stress and get 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night. Visit the American Heart Month web page to find additional resources to use throughout the month.
