February is American Heart Month

American Heart Month is an annual observance in February to raise awareness about heart disease and its risk factors. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and other countries, and it is essential to educate people about its prevention and management.

We are encouraging everyone at Premier to celebrate American Heart Month by getting yourself motivated to adopt healthy lifestyles to prevent heart disease.  Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.   This is a disease that touches every family and age group, young and old.  Heart disease claims nearly 700,000 lives a year.  From heart attacks and strokes to high blood pressure, it is a national problem, which is often preventable with lifestyle changes and advancements in technology.

Premier is declaring February Heart Awareness Month and would like to ask you to join us in doing what we can to raise awareness of the importance of a healthy heart.  Lifestyle changes, along with being aware of the warning signs of a heart attach or stroke, will help us all be better prepared for our future.

Focusing on your heart health has never been more important.

  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. But you can do a lot to protect your heart. Learn more about heart-healthy living.
  • Prioritizing your heart can help you avoid severe illness. People with poor cardiovascular health are also at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Learn how COVID-19 affects your heart.
  • Self-care is heart-health care. Practicing self-care can keep our hearts healthy. Being physically active, eating healthier foods, getting enough sleep, not smoking, and finding healthy ways to reduce stress can help prevent heart disease. And, when we take care of our hearts, we set an example for those around us to do the same.
  • Get to know #OurHearts! Learn what a healthy blood pressure, cholesterol, weight, and blood sugar level is for you and how they impact your risk for heart disease. Having a basic understanding of information that concerns your health and using the information to inform health-related decisions and actions for yourself and others, is strongly linked to better health.
