We want all Australians to know the warning signs of a heart attack.
Each year the Heart Foundation uses Heart Week as an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the problem of heart disease and to help improve the heart health of all Australians.
Heart Week ran from 4 - 10 May in 2014, and we were thrilled to send out 11,000 Heart Week kits to supporters throughout Australia.
Each year, almost 10,000 Australians die of a heart attack. And more than 1million Australians aged 30-65 are at high risk of having a heart attack or stroke — but they may not even know they’re at risk.
That’s why we are urging all Australians to learn the warning signs of a heart attack and reduce their risk of having one.
Keep an eye out here for updates later in the year about Heart Week 2015.
In the meantime, take a look at our Extra Resources page for heart health information you can display all year round.
