February is American Heart Month, a time to pay special attention to understanding, preventing and treating heart disease — the leading cause of death in the nation. This year, the 58th American Heart Month, the American Heart Association is urging people all over the country to "reclaim your rhythm."

What does that mean? Quite simply, the AHA is encouraging people to reclaim control of their mental and physical well-being after two difficult years of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here are just a few examples of how you can reclaim your health:
- Visit our website for tools and resources.
- National Wear Red Day, February 4, 2022: National Wear Red Day is the icon day of American Heart Month. On Feb. 4, wear red and help raise awareness of women’s No. 1 killer – cardiovascular disease.
- Get Social! Spread the Word: Tell us how you’re reclaiming your rhythm in February by posting it to social using #WearRedDay #WearRedandGive and #HeartMonth to help raise awareness that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women.
- Learn Hands-Only CPR
- Eat healthy (the AHA's Heart-Check mark can guide you in the grocery store)
There are lots of ways to be a part of American Heart Month. Join us as we wear RED and help raise awareness of women’s No. 1 killer – cardiovascular disease.
