Council Recognizes American Heart Month

American Heart Month

This February, join the Council in recognizing American Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, and homelessness can be particularly hard on the heart—adults without homes die at much higher rates from cardiovascular disease than those with stable housing.

Find important resources on heart disease as it affects people experiencing homelessness on our Cardiovascular Disease resource page, and consider joining the Million Hearts #HeartMonth challenge to learn heart-healthy behaviors.
