Each February we have the opportunity to celebrate American Heart Month. This national initiative, started over fifty years ago, focuses upon two primary goals:
- Preventing and/or managing heart-related diseases
- Promoting heart-healthy lifestyle options
With the abundance of health information readily available to all of us via our electronic devices, locating and evaluating heart-related resources can be challenging. To learn more about reliable freely available pediatric and adult heart information resources, please register and join in this session.
