Henry Mayo Happenings - February 2022

February is American Heart Month, and Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital has a full slate of activities throughout the month to help raise awareness and educate the community about cardiovascular health.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, one in four deaths is caused by heart disease. The good news is that heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. Henry Mayo’s events are designed to help people make healthier choices.

Henry Mayo is sponsoring the following Hearth Health events in February:

  • Feb. 13-19: Celebrate National Cardiac Rehab Week - This week we celebrate the life-saving impact of cardiac rehabilitation.

  • Feb. 22: Maintaining Heart Health During COVID-19 - UCLA Health cardiologist James Lee, M.D. will discuss how managing hypertension and improving heart health can help fight disease during these unusual circumstances via Zoom.
