The American Heart Association is celebrating a century of progress against cardiovascular disease. It is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.

February is American Heart Month, an annual observance to raise awareness about heart health and cardiovascular diseases. It serves as a reminder for everyone to prioritize heart health, healthy lifestyles, and heart disease prevention.

American Heart Month highlights the need for cardiovascular awareness, especially for women. National Wear Red Day is observed annually on the first Friday in February to educate the public and raise awareness about heart disease, the leading cause of death for women in the United States.
