National Heart Disease Awareness Month
February 10, 2011
Heart disease is the number one leading cause of death in the United States. The month of February is dedicated to raising awareness about heart disease and increasing knowledge about prevention. You can educate yourself on the dangers of heart disease by checking out any of our books on how to prevent, halt, or reverse heart disease at any one of our branch locations!
