- Wear red!
Valentine’s Day isn’t the only day where wearing red makes people feel loved. This is also an awesome way for you to celebrate, support and raise awareness for heart disease in America! Pull out your red shirts, pins, hats – whatever you’d like – and step in style knowing that you are supporting those who have had to deal with the unlikeliness of heart disease.
- Host a CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) training event
If you are one who loves to be involved in the community, this is a wonderful option for you to take advantage of. Get in touch with your health care professional who is CPR certified to teach the class. The community members will learn how to execute CPR properly, become educated about different heart diseases, and how to live a happy heart life. It’s important for more people in our community to understand the basics of CPR. You can also encourage everyone to wear red!
- Schedule a doctor’s appointment
We’ve all heard the “better safe than sorry” motto. If you are experiencing any heart disease symptoms such as a rapid, irregular heartbeat or a persistent cough or wheezing, please give us a call and schedule an appointment. Even if you aren’t experiencing any symptoms, in honor of American Heart Month, give your heart an all-around checkup. Prevent a heart attack before it happens!
