Celebrate National Heart Valve Disease Day on Feb. 22

Cardiology Magazine

Join the ACC in recognizing National Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day on Feb. 22 as part of American Heart Month. The ACC and the American Heart Association recently released an updated Guideline for the Management of Patients with Valvular Heart Disease that includes expanded treatment options, recommends fewer invasive interventions, when possible, and stresses the importance of patient involvement. Share CardioSmart's Patient Summary with patients to help understand the new guideline, along with the CardioSmart Heart Valve Disease infographic. Join the ACC in participating in a Twitter Chat with the Alliance for Aging Research on Feb. 22 at 3 pm ET, using #ValveDiseaseDay.  Join the full conversation on Twitter by tagging @ACCinTouch.
