Join World Heart Day 2017

09/27/2017 - Join the National Forum on Heart Disease and Stroke to raise awareness of World Heart Day on September 29, an annual event that was started in 2000 by the World Heart Federation. This year’s World Heart Day theme is “share the power,” as the World Heart Federation is asking people to share how they power their heart and “inspire millions of people around the world to be heart healthy.”

To help raise awareness for World Heart Day, the National Forum has created a Thunderclap page, which make it easy to share World Heart Day messages via social media accounts. The Academy is a member of the National Forum and Academy members are encouraged to spread the World Heart Day message.

The World Heart Federation offers additional World Heart Day resources and a map of World Heart Day events.
