Heart Health Month Events Continue
February’s American Heart Month observance (https://go.usa.gov/xtmvH) is a special time for NHLBI and The Heart Truth because it offers an opportunity to bring even greater attention to U.S. heart health. And that has never been more important. As the pandemic continues, many of us are feeling more stressed than ever. This month NHLBI is focusing efforts on reminding Americans that self-care is heart care.
On Friday, Feb. 25, from noon to 12:30 p.m. ET, learn how we can respond better to stress. Dr. Laurie Friedman Donze of NHLBI and Dr. Krystal M. Lewis of NIMH will discuss stress and its impact on heart and mental health, and demonstrate ways to bring on your body’s relaxation response. Join here: https://www.facebook.com/events/659310535421645/. The event also will be on the NIMH Facebook page at facebook.com/NIMHgov as a live event.
