February is Heart Month

Each February during American Heart Month, the WakeMed Heart Center takes the opportunity to step out and share the importance of taking care of your heart. 

Whether it's undergoing a procedure, learning about risk factors for heart disease, considering healthier eating options or putting your best foot forward on the treadmill, your health is close to our hearts. 

During February, WakeMed celebrates Heart Month by hosting a variety of heart-related events, screenings and seminars at various WakeMed locations, as well as organizing special promotions with local businesses.
