February is American Heart Month

Throughout the month of February SDAHO will provide education and resources to help educate our members on those they serve regarding cardiovascular health.

This is a time when all people- especially women-are encouraged to focus on their cardiovascular health.

This Heart Month, the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP) is encouraging women to listen to their hearts and speak up for their health. Women in the United States are experiencing unacceptable and avoidable heart-related illness and death, and nearly half of U.S. women do not recognize that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women.

DHDSP aims to shed light on this important topic so that women no longer experience delayed recognition, diagnosis, and treatment for cardiac events, such as heart attacks.

As a health care professional or clinician, you play an important role helping patients, including women, manage and control their health conditions, including hypertension.

High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease, and high blood pressure is steadily increasing as a contributing cause of death for U.S. women of all ages.

By working toward a healthier life, women and their health care teams can help close this disparity gap.

The SDAHO team took part in recognizing National Wear Red Day on February 2.
