The Curious Heart of Ailsa Rae by Stephanie Butland l The Open Heart Club by Gabriel Brownstein l State of the Heart by Haider Warraich, MD

Heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States, is largely preventable.

There are many things people can do to reduce their risk: exercise, make healthy food choices, and also visit their healthcare provider regularly. February is American Heart Month, but any time is a good time to help raise awareness about heart disease and prevention.

To help get the conversation started, visit the NNLM Reading Club Book Selections and Health Resources: Heart Health. Choose one of the three featured books, then download the discussion guide, promotional materials and corresponding  resources. Short on time?  No worries! Apply for a free NNLM Reading Club Book kit.
