Have a Heart-Healthy Holiday
Date:10/9/2007

to colds and the flu this holiday season. High blood pressure patients need to be aware that many common decongestants can raise their blood pressure even more and may conflict with prescribed blood pressure medications.

The rate of depression in the population peaks during holiday months. A heart or stroke patient who has recently suffered an event may be particularly vulnerable. The American Heart Association has resources to help manage and identify depression for both patients and their caregivers.

Giving From the Heart

This holiday season, not only can you give gifts that friends and family will want or need, but you will also be supporting American Heart Association programs.

Go Red For Women merchandise can be purchased online at ShopGoRed.org to help support the movement's mission: empowering women to wipe out heart disease, their No. 1 killer.

Power To End Stroke merchandise such as tote bags, gym bags, clothing, cookbooks and more can be purchased online at ShopPower.org. Your purchase supports the Power To End Stroke campaign, which is targeted toward African Americans, who have an increased risk of stroke compared to other groups.
