American Heart Month Toolkits 2023
In case you missed the 2023 American Heart Month (AHM) planning webinar, review this slide deck, which features information and graphics from the “Live to the Beat” campaign and outlines DHDSP’s AHM efforts and key resources.
February is American Heart Month, a time when all people can focus on their cardiovascular health.
This Heart Month the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention is expanding the reach of the Million Hearts® and CDC Foundation’s “Live to the Beat” campaign, which focuses on encouraging and empowering Black adults ages 35 to 54 to take small steps to reduce their risks for cardiovascular disease (CVD).
CVD and CVD mortality are increasing in working-age adults, and Black adults are among those bearing the highest burden of CVD and the related health consequences, particularly in the United States. Black adults in the United States die from heart disease at a rate two times higher than White adults.
We encourage individuals, health care and public health professionals, and our partners to help close the disparities gap.
Using this website’s tools and “Live to the Beat” resources, help your patients, family, and friends learn how to control their blood pressure, manage their cholesterol and blood glucose levels, move more, eat healthier, stress less, work with their health care team, and quit smoking.
