Raise Awareness for Valve Disease with THI on Friday Feb 22

National Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day is Friday, February 22.  This day is dedicated to spreading life saving information about heart valve disease with activities taking place throughout the day across the Unites States.

On Friday and throughout the year, Texas Heart Institute joins 50+ campaign partners, non-profits, advocacy organizations, professional societies, and hospitals and heart centers helping to spread the word about valve disease.

The goal of the annual awareness day is to increase recognition of the specific risks and symptoms of heart valve disease, improve detection and treatment, and ultimately save lives.

While heart valve disease can be can be disabling and deadly, available treatments can save lives, making education and awareness particularly important.

A Valve Disease Day Twitter Chat will be taking place from 1:00-2:00pm EST through the @ValveDiseaseDay.

Share resources developed at Texas Heart with friends, family and colleagues.
