February Marks the Beginning of American Heart Month

Full Story
February marks the beginning of American Heart Month, a federally designated month that is a great way to remind Americans to focus on their hearts and commit to a healthy lifestyle. By making lifestyle changes and eliminating their risk factors, Floridians can help fight one of the deadliest diseases in the state and the nation among both men and women—heart disease.

February 7 is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD). NBHAAD was founded 18 years ago to bring attention to the growing HIV and AIDS epidemic in black communities. This year’s theme, “Together for Love: Stop HIV Stigma,” emphasizes the idea that working together is key to stopping HIV stigma. The Florida Department of Health joins community partners across the country to emphasize the importance of getting educated, tested and treated to receive the continuum of care needed to live a healthful life with HIV/AIDS.
