February is American Heart Month, a time when we put the spotlight on heart disease which is #1 killer in the U.S. During February, the American Heart Association and other organizations support the importance of heart health, including more research and efforts to ensure millions of Americans live longer and healthier lives. Heart disease is preventable for a lot of people when they practice a healthy lifestyle, which includes not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, controlling blood sugar and cholesterol, treating high blood pressure, regular checkups, and at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity a day.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many people to delay or avoid going to hospitals for heart attacks and strokes. These actions are responsible for poorer outcomes. Also, while in lockdown, an increased number of people have engaged in unhealthy lifestyle behaviors, such as eating poorly, drinking more alcohol and limiting physical activity, all contributing to increased chances of heart disease.
