February 10-16, 2019 is Heart Failure Awareness Week! To increase national awareness about the severity of this disease, HFSA declared through the US Senate in 2001 the week of Valentine’s Day as National Heart Failure Awareness Week. HFSA is asking the public to take action by supporting the society’s efforts to promote heart failure awareness, patient education, and heart failure prevention.
“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.
