ABSTRACT
Since 1963 Congress has required the president proclaim February "American Heart Month." The American Heart Association works with the administration to draft and sign the annual proclamation. As a longstanding and well respected tradition it provides an opportunity to target heart disease through community outreach and education. In this issue of Patient Education Management we ask experts in the field what educational strategies might be used to combat heart disease.
