American Heart Month 2017: Change Starts with a Heart-to-Heart

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for people of most racial/ethnic groups in the United States, including African Americans, Hispanics, and whites.

That’s why, for American Heart Month 2017, Million Hearts® is calling on younger Americans to spread prevention messages. We believe young adults have the power to engage their parents in crucial conversations about heart disease prevention that can result in heart-healthy behavior changes.

Encourage young adults to have a heart-to-heart throughout the month of February and beyond.
