National Heart Failure Awareness Week
February 12-18, 2017
“Do Your Part, Know Your Heart” Campaign
The Do Your Part, Know Your Heart campaign is a community-focused heart failure awareness initiative that encourages individuals to take an active role in maintaining their heart health. The campaign aims to promote self-health awareness by encouraging regular checkups, educating about the signs and symptoms of heart failure, providing information on diet and exercise, and stressing the importance of regular screenings. Do Your Part, Know Your Heart seeks to make living with heart failure less of a challenge, and arms patients with the information and resources they need to take control of their heart health.
