According to the World Heart Foundation, World Heart Day was founded in 2000 to inform people around the world that heart disease and stroke are the two leading causes of death. There are different events across the world that take place on this day to bring awareness of staying heart healthy. This year’s theme is creating heart-healthy environments.
Most of you who know me know my heart history, which is also detailed in my previous blogs. I am SO incredibly thankful to be here, to have survived a significant heart attack 5 years ago. Let’s participate in some way to World Heart Day, whether on a local level or national level, we are all able to empower each other to a healthier heart!
