Heart disease can't read a calendar or tell time, yet like clockwork--every day of every month of every year--it impacts the lives of men and women. In fact it's the #1 killer of Americans, every year taking more of our lives than every form of cancer combined--and much of it is preventable.
February is awash in red, with matters of the heart front and center. American Heart Month. Valentine's Day. Go Red for Women. The TWU Libraries remind everyone that this month (and the next, and all the ones after that) there's a lot you can learn and do to keep yourself, and those you care about, healthy and heart disease-free.
Begin by educating yourself with information from the American Heart Association; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and the TWU Libraries. Then make a plan and follow through. It's the best Valentine's Day present you can give to yourself and those you love.
Heart disease prevention--it's a matter of the heart.
