In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson first proclaimed February as National Heart Month. The purpose was to draw attention to the importance of heart health as heart disease takes a heavy toll on American life every year. This year, President Barack Obama made the same proclamation as we all strive to be more aware of what steps to take to maintain a healthier heart.
