Take the road to a healthy heart. September 29, 2013 is World Heart Day. It is a day to actively take steps towards a healthy heart. Exercise. Eat healthy. Avoid tobacco. Learn more at www.worldheartday.org.


In celebration of World Heart Day (WHD) 2013 on September 29 and World Teacher's Day on October 5, the Philippine Heart Association (PHA) promotes heart health of teachers. The project, called  "BP ng Teacher Ko Alaga Ko", started in September 2010 to provide awareness on the health concerns of the teachers. This is a joint project by PHA, Department of Education and Philippine Society of Hypertension, Inc. (PSH).


This year's World Heart Day theme will focus on: a life-course approach to the prevention and control of cardiovascular disease (CVD) with a focus on women and children ... because healthy children lead to healthy adults and healthy adults lead to healthy families and communities.
