Heart Month

 The Heart Foundation of Jamaica’s (HFJ) activities are heightened in February as we celebrate Heart Month which aims to send an urgent wake-up call and increase awareness as the risk of heart disease continues to increase in Jamaica. Our activities for the month include several outside broadcasts which give Jamaicans the opportunity to receive complimentary screening and patient counseling.
