Heart Month at the Frankel Cardiovascular Center 2022

At the Michigan Medicine Frankel Cardiovascular Center, every month is Heart Month. But during National Heart Month — February of each year — we take time to raise awareness about preventing the leading cause of death for both men and women and to tell you about our research into innovative new treatments to help our patients live their best lives.
