We have always highlighted Heart Health Month throughout the month of February, but President Obama has now made it official! 
 
President Obama is hoping to help further educate Americans and spread awareness about heart disease by declaring February as American Heart Month! 
 
As the federal declaration states, “cardiovascular disease is the number 1 killer of American women and men, and it is the leading cause of serious illness and disability.” Obama states “By maintaining a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and not smoking, you can control risk factors and help protect your heart.”
