February is American Heart Month
Every February, organizations around the country bring awareness to heart disease as a leading cause of death for Americans. Here at the library, we have a variety of resources you can use to learn more about heart disease and ways to keep yourself healthy. We have some books, which are on display on the brown bookshelf near the old microfilm machines on the second floor, along with a binder containing information sheets that you are welcome to take.
You can also read books and articles from the comfort of your home. Both Hoopla and Overdrive (Libby) have a selection of books about heart health, heart disease, and heart-healthy eating. You can take a look at our Health & Wellness or Health & Medicine Databases if you would like to read articles. Choose between reference sources, magazines, news articles, or academic journals. Finally, you can look at the websites listed below.
- Heart Disease
- Patient Education Resources
- Million Hearts Campaign
- Million Hearts Recipes for a Heart-Healthy Lifestyle
- American Heart Month Resources for Individuals and Patients
