An estimated 11 million Americans in the U.S. have heart valve disease (HVD). Valve disease involves damage to one or more of the heart’s valves, and while some types are not serious, others can lead to major complications—including death.
Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day
On February 22, 2019, join more than 69+ non-profits, advocacy organizations, professional societies, and hospitals and heart centers from around the world in their efforts to increase recognition of heart valve disease risks and symptoms, and improve detection and treatment. The goal of the annual awareness day on February 22 is to do just that, and ultimately save lives! While heart valve disease can be disabling and deadly, available treatments can save lives, making education and awareness particularly important. On this day and throughout the year, the campaign partners are helping to spread the word about valve disease.
