American Heart Month Activities at South Denver Cardiology

American Heart Month activities at South Denver Cardiology Associates

February is American Heart Month. This annual month-long commemoration began in 1964 when President Lyndon Johnson, who had previously had a heart attack, declared that February would serve to raise awareness about the dangers of heart disease and to promote ways to live a more heart healthy lifestyle.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), someone dies from heart disease every 33 seconds, and approximately 805,000 Americans have a heart attack every year. At South Denver Cardiology Associates, we’re getting into the spirit of this important national commemoration to help promote the importance of a heart healthy life with a variety of activities throughout the month.

Heart Failure Awareness Week

Heart Failure Awareness Week is February 11-17. South Denver Cardiology will be joining other organizations and cardiology clinics around the country in promoting awareness of heart failure all week long. Our team will provide patient education and heart failure prevention tips to help you minimize your risk of this life-threatening condition.

Cardiac Rehabilitation Week

February 11-17 is also Cardiac Rehabilitation Week. All week long, South Denver Cardiology will be raising awareness of the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation programs and highlighting the important services we offer at our clinic.
