Focus on Heart Health During February

Statewide Iowa – With Valentine’s Day coming up, we’ll be seeing a lot of red hearts, but also because it’s American Heart Month. Brian Geelan is a spokesman for the Iowa chapter of the American Heart Association.

This Friday is National Wear Red Day, which is always the first Friday in February. Geelan encourages Iowans to wear something red all day and to do a little research and consider their own heart health.

Geelan says educating the public about heart health is a key program with the Heart Association.

This February also marks the 60th annual observance of American Heart Month. There will be special events across Iowa for the observance of American Heart Month.
