Health Minute: American Heart Month

Health Minute logo

WPSU’s Health Minute is a collaboration with Penn State’s Ross and Carol Nese College of Nursing.

February is American Heart Month and a great time to focus on cardiovascular health. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is still the number one killer in America.

We all face pressure to meet our regular financial, personal, and physical needs, and that struggle is made even harder by the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s important to continue to focus on creating the healthiest version of ourselves during these challenging times.

Practicing good heart self-care can also help influence those around us to do the same. For more information on healthy heart best practices, visit the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute website.

Cheraine Stanford is the Content Strategy Director at WPSU, responsible for developing the station's original productions across digital, radio and television.
