February is American Heart Month, a time to recognize the devastating impact that heart disease has on our communities. President Lyndon B. Johnson was the first to sign a proclamation designating February as a time to increase public knowledge of this issue, and 57 years later, heart health is more important than ever.
The month of love is upon us. As people worldwide prepare to celebrate their love for friends, family and the person who stole their heart, it is critical that we take a moment and practice a little self-love for our own heart.
January is Thyroid Awareness Month, a time we set aside each year to recognize the many challenges that people with thyroid disorders endure every day and to raise awareness of the need to get regular checkups to prevent serious conditions.
