February is National Heart Month
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 joiningthe 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 HeartsTM, 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.
