It’s American Heart Month, so let’s spend this month spreading awareness about heart health issues and the importance of preventing heart disease. Here are some easy ways to get involved with Heart Month:
- Give a free CPR class or host a compression-only demonstration and practice session in your community. Provide heart health fact sheets as handouts to participants.
- Organize a walking group with friends, family and neighbors. Or create a walking schedule, so everyone can participate without being physically together.
- Post heart-healthy recipes for your social media network to enjoy. Make recipes on your own or coordinate to have a virtual meal with multiple families cooking the same recipe at the same time.
