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.
It's HEART MONTH once again! Join us on February 16, 2013, at the Quezon City Memorial Circle (Basketball Covered Court), for a day of heart-healthy fun. Free ECG, BP, fasting blood sugar, and blood cholesterol will be available. HEART WELLNESS IS A FAMILY BUSINESS! So bring everyone in your family, okay?

On 29 September 2012, the sudden downpour did not dampen the enthusiasm of nearly 1,000 Makati residents at the Makati City Hall grounds to celebrate World Heart Day (WHD) with the Philippine Heart Association (PHA), which marked the global celebration with risk factor screenings, inter-high school jump rope competition and mother/child dance contest and lay lectures on healthy lifestyle.
“One World, One Home, One Heart” was adopted from the WHD Celebration 2011, but this year’s theme focused on educating women to take action and adopt heart-healthy behavior not only to prevent exposure to risk factors for themselves but also for the well-being of their children.
