February is American Heart month, a time when communities across the country seek to bring attention to protecting your heart's health. 

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.  One person dies every 33 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease. 

But there’s also good news: Taking charge of your health may help you prevent heart related health problems. To learn more about American Heart Month and steps you can take to prevent heart health issues, visit the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute website.
