National Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day

February 22, 2017, marked the inaugural National Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day in the U.S., as recognized by the Department of Health and Human Services. The day of awareness was established with the strong leadership from Alliance for Aging Research using a grant from Every Heartbeat Matters (EHM) and participatory support of more than 20 partners (including several EHM partners). The goal of this now annual awareness day is to increase recognition of the specific risks and symptoms of heart valve disease, improve detection and treatment, and ultimately save lives. The Edwards Lifesciences Foundation provided unrestricted educational support for the Alliance’s activities for National Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day.
