February is National Heart Month

National Wear Red Day - February 2, 2018

An average of 2,200 Americans die each day from heart disease and is the number one killer of women. That is an average of one death every 40 seconds and one woman every 80 seconds.

80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable with education and action so, join us in wearing red on February 2nd to show your support and raise awareness of heart disease.

Little Hats, Big Hearts

Jupiter Medical Center will be joining the American Heart Association, in connection with The Children's Heart Foundation, to celebrate American Heart Month by knitting and crocheting red hats for babies born in February. Little Hats, Big Hearts™ honors babies, moms, and heart healthy lives in a very special way. Supporters are knitting and crocheting red hats to be given out to thousands of babies during American Heart Month in order to empower moms to live heart healthy lives and to help their children do the same.

Together, we are working to raise awareness, provide resources and inspire moms to take their family’s heart health to heart while also raising awareness about Congenital Heart Defects.
