For matters of the heart, February is the month.  Beyond flowers and cards and heart-shaped boxes of candy, the second month of the year is American Heart Month, an annual national campaign to raise awareness of heart disease.  The TWU Libraries invite you to join us as we recognize the importance of heart health by doing our part to raise awareness of the nation's No. 1 killer.

There are 3 important things to know about heart disease, the 
No. 1 killer of women in this country.

1  Heart disease strikes more women than men, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer COMBINED.

With the right information, education and care, heart disease in women can be treated, prevented--even stopped.

3  The signs of a heart attack in women may differ from those commonly found in men; they can easily be mistaken for symptoms of other ailments.
