What activities can you, your students, and/or your school offer to improve the heart health of everyone?

Do your students know the warning signs of a heart attack, stroke, or cardiac arrest?  Do they know what to do if they or someone else exhibits these signs?

 

February has been designated as American Heart Month since 1963.  Because heart disease kills an estimated 630,000 Americans each year, this month was selected to urge Americans to join the battle against heart disease.  It's the leading cause of death for both men and women.

 

How can you help students become more aware of heart disease and their need to make good lifestyle choices to protect their heart?

 

Some suggestions are available on the following website: American Heart Association – Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
