The official Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day 2020 Highlights and Overview brochure is now available! The campaign reached over 248 million people this year through more than 30 in-person events, social media and online promotion, and more, hosted by the campaign’s fabulous partners.
The goal of the annual awareness day on February 22 is to increase recognition of the specific risks and symptoms of heart valve disease, improve detection and treatment, 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—76 non-profits, advocacy organizations, professional societies, and hospitals and heart centers—are helping to spread the word about valve disease.
