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.
Featured Heart Month Resources
Visit the Michigan Health blog throughout February (and beyond!) to read helpful heart info and to meet those who are fighting heart disease up close and personal.
