February marks the beginning of American Heart Month, a federally designated month that is a great way to remind Americans to focus on their hearts and commit to healthy lifestyles to help fight the number one killer in the state of Florida and the nation - Heart Disease. Officials say there are simple steps you can take to be healthier.
