National Heart Awareness Month, Or Heart Defect Awareness Month

February 2 2015
Hello, It is National Heart Awareness Month, Or Heart Defects Awareness Month as I like to put it.

Some Heart facts/information::  I read, and share into several Support Groups, articles on Heart Defects, and Pulmonary Hypertension, almost every day. Here are some of  those selections.

I have an Interest List "Heart" set up with over 300+ Groups, Hospital Systems, Organizations, Non-Profits, all heart related. These Facebook pages adds into my feeds, and takes forever to scroll through. I also have an abbreviated one, I use most of the time. (I need to downsize it, but can't choose between deleting Rare Diseases, or Genetics)
""Cardiac disease patients bare scars for Kelvingrove exhibition
Friday 30 January 2015
SURVIVORS of congenital cardiac disease are baring their scars in a photo exhibition to raise awareness of heart conditions.
The Scarred FOR Life project will see a number of photos by Herald photographer Kirsty Anderson go on display at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum in Glasgow for a month from February 13....
Ms Wilson, who had open heart surgery in her early 30s, said the exhibition was being organised to raise awareness of congenital heart disease, which affects one in 125 babies....""

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association has a number of Webinars if you have PAH-CHD.

AHA Journals Include: Circulation, Cardiovascular Imaging, and others. But the AHA do mostly Non Congenital Heart Defect Research. In other words, it is mostly Coronary Heart Disease. The Journals come out, at least once a month.
Then there are articles I wish I could read, but need to sign in to.
Achievements in Congenital Heart Defect Surgery: A Prospective, 40 Year Study of 7038 Patients

The American Thoracic Society puts out a Journal, Chest, which I try to read regularly.

Hospital systems post articles about Patient stories.

Also reading the feeds for these 2 medical sites, every day.

and trying to decide on entering this contest? They said, you don't have to have had Open Heart Surgery, just Heart Defects.

Thank You love diane
