American Heart Month
Take action to promote heart health.  Heart disease - and the conditions that lead to it - can happen at any age.  Half of all Americans have at least one of the top three risk factors for heart disease.  American Heart Month is a great way to learn about your risk for heart disease and the steps you need to take now to help your heart.
 
International Prenatal Infection Prevention Month
February is a month to raise awareness of group B Strep and the dangers it poses to unborn babies.  Our goal every year is to educate people on how to help prevent prenatal infections.
 
Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week
Observed in February and sponsored by the American Heart Association, Congenital Heart Defect Awareness week encourages awareness and education about congenital heart defects (CHDs). This week honors those born with and touched by people born with heart defects.
 
Condom Week
Every year during Valentine's Day week, organizations across the country from Planned Parenthood to Advocates for Youth celebrate National Condom Week.  It's YOUR health - take charge and be safe!
 
World Cancer Day
World Cancer Day is an international day marked on February 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection and treatment.
 
National Donor Day
National Donor Day is observed each year on February 14th.  It is a day to increase awareness about organ donation and the lives that can be saved.  In the United States, more than 120,000 people are waiting for a life-saving organ donation.
