February is American Heart Month: 28 Days to a Healthier Heart

February may be the shortest month of the year, but it’s enough time to achieve some big improvements in your heart health. Now is the perfect time to get started on a new, heart-healthy game plan. Think about making one small change each week to lower sodium, get active, quit smoking, and control blood pressure to boost your heart health this month. Take a look at this calendar to help you make incremental steps to halt the salt, get moving, stop smoking and know your blood pressure.

Colorado participates in the Million Hearts Initiative, an effort to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over five years. You can participate too. Be one in a million - make your commitment and pledge today.
