29 September – World Heart Day

Join the global movement for better heart-healthy choices wherever you live, work and play.

Heart disease and stroke are the world’s leading cause of death, claiming 17.3 million lives each year and the numbers are rising. By 2030, it is expected that 23 million people will die from CVDs annually.  The focus of the 2014 World Heart Day is the creation of a global movement to harness the power of individuals to protect their own, and others', heart health.
ICN’s Grow Your Wellness website provides nurses with key educational resources to help them adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle and reap the many benefits, such as increased energy, a sense of wellness and a reduction in the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other noncommunicable diseases.
