February is American Heart Month, which celebrates the adoption of healthy lifestyles to prevent heart disease. With COVID-19 still affecting our nation, it is more imperative than ever to focus on heart health, as people with poor cardiovascular health are also at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. This is why we have decided to support the North Carolina Chapter of the American College of Cardiology in their effort to better serve their patients.
The American College of Cardiology envisions a world where innovation and knowledge optimize cardiovascular care and outcomes. As the professional home for the entire cardiovascular care team, the mission of the College and its more than 54,000 members is to transform cardiovascular care and to improve heart health. The ACC bestows credentials upon cardiovascular professionals who meet stringent qualifications and lead in the formation of health policy, standards, and guidelines. The College also provides professional medical education, disseminates cardiovascular research through its world-renowned JACC Journals, operates national registries to measure and improve care, and offers cardiovascular accreditation to hospitals and institutions.
Because this cause is so important to us, we’re now advocating and directing monetary rewards to this very cause. When you recommend someone to us for a quote, we offer to donate $10 on your behalf. And yes, that is for EACH friend you send us. How many do you have? Do the math!
