About

National Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day

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—60+ non-profits, advocacy organizations, professional societies, and hospitals and heart centers—are helping to spread the word about valve disease.
