Celebrate Black History Month with WomenHeart!
#29DaysOfHeart is WomenHeart’s annual social media campaign to raise awareness about heart disease in African-American women. Black History Month and Heart Month both occur in February and we want the opportunity to celebrate both! #29DaysOfHeart uplifts the voices of Black women. It also shines a spotlight on the disproportionate impact of heart disease among African-American women, and therefore the need to raise awareness about risk factors and heart healthy living.
Join us as we spread the word and take action.

Happy #29DaysOfHeart! We are/I am joining @WomenHeartNatl in its annual campaign to raise awareness about heart disease in African American women. Each year during #BlackHistoryMonth and #HeartMonth, we encourage Black women to take charge of their own heart health. [attach graphic below]

Health inequities persist. We can work together this #HeartMonth and #BlackHistoryMonth to raise awareness of the risks of heart disease so Black women are empowered to be heart healthy. #29DaysofHeart [attach graphic below]
