The Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day campaign has 1000+ constituents that work alongside partners to spread awareness about valve disease and advocate for valve disease patients. Advocates play a special role in educating patients, families, and communities about the risk factors for valve disease, encouraging regular check-ups, and pointing to resources for diagnosis and treatment. If you are a current valve disease patient, family caregiver, health professional, or other advocate, we encourage you to get involved.

There are many ways individuals can participate in the campaign. This page provides resources for advocates to use in their efforts, including core messages, outreach channels, information about contacting media, and more.
