American Heart Month, a federally designated event in February of each year, focuses on educating Americans about cardiovascular disease and reminding people to monitor and improve their heart health.

Friday, February 2, 2018, was National Wear Red Day®, an advocacy day focused on raising awareness of cardiovascular disease and raising funds for the Go Red For Women® campaign. With nearly 500,000 American women dying from heart disease and stroke each year, this campaign works to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
