Heart Health Awareness: A 2021 Special Report

February 24, 2021

From the Everyday Health website

February is American Heart Month, dedicated to educating and empowering people to take steps to prioritize their heart health and prevent complications such as heart attack. Each year, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute reinforces these messages, but this year it’s more important than ever to put a renewed focus on your heart health. Experts are beginning to recognize how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted people with cardiovascular disease and identify steps you may need to take to protect your heart today.

In January, to explore the ways that COVID-19 plays a role in your heart health, Everyday Health surveyed 710 people who are affected by heart disease to learn about their lifestyle and self-care habits — and how COVID-19 has impacted their care.

Here’s what they said, plus other facts about managing your heart health during the pandemic.
