Despite this progress, heart disease remains a leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, and we must reduce its toll. During American Heart Month, we remember those who have lost their lives to heart disease and resolve to improve its prevention, detection, and treatment. It is a time for all of us to reaffirm our commitment to improving cardiovascular health— for ourselves, our families, and our communities. Over the past several decades, we have learned much about factors that contribute to heart disease, how to monitor those triggers, and ways to treat them. We know that individuals can live longer and better lives by refraining from tobacco use, maintaining an optimal blood pressure and a healthy weight, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly. Innovative companies continue to offer new tools and online systems, giving people more access than ever to information they can use to make informed, healthconscious choices. Scientific research and evidence-based interventions to prevent or treat heart attacks and strokes have played an important part in making these strides. Developments in technology and the discovery of early markers of heart disease have allowed us to diagnose and treat heart disease sooner than ever before. American innovators continue to develop treatments for high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and our health care providers continue to promote best strategies and educate Americans to stay heart healthy. To highlight the importance of preventing heart disease, Melania and I invite all Americans to wear red this Friday, February 3, 2017, to observe National Wear Red Day. Working together on National Wear Red Day, and throughout the year, we can raise awareness about heart disease and make our Nation healthier. In acknowledgement of the importance of the ongoing fight against cardiovascular disease, the Congress, by Joint Resolution approved on December 30, 1963, as amended (36 U.S.C. 101), has requested that the President issue an annual proclamation designating February as American Heart Month. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with D0 NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J.

American Heart Month, 2017

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                The death rate from heart disease in the United States 
                has fallen dramatically since the 1960s, a significant 
                public health victory. Despite this progress, heart 
                disease remains a leading cause of death for both men 
                and women in the United States, and we must reduce its 
                toll. During American Heart Month, we remember those 
                who have lost their lives to heart disease and resolve 
                to improve its prevention, detection, and treatment. It 
                is a time for all of us to reaffirm our commitment to 
                improving cardiovascular health--for ourselves, our 
                families, and our communities.

                Over the past several decades, we have learned much 
                about factors that contribute to heart disease, how to 
                monitor those triggers, and ways to treat them. We know 
                that individuals can live longer and better lives by 
                refraining from tobacco use, maintaining an optimal 
                blood pressure and a healthy weight, eating a healthy 
                diet, and exercising regularly. Innovative companies 
                continue to offer new tools and online systems, giving 
                people more access than ever to information they can 
                use to make informed, health-conscious choices.

                Scientific research and evidence-based interventions to 
                prevent or treat heart attacks and strokes have played 
                an important part in making these strides. Developments 
                in technology and the discovery of early markers of 
                heart disease have allowed us to diagnose and treat 
                heart disease sooner than ever before. American 
                innovators continue to develop treatments for high 
                blood pressure and high cholesterol, and our health 
                care providers continue to promote best strategies and 
                educate Americans to stay heart healthy.

                To highlight the importance of preventing heart 
                disease, Melania and I invite all Americans to wear red 
                this Friday, February 3, 2017, to observe National Wear 
                Red Day. Working together on National Wear Red Day, and 
                throughout the year, we can raise awareness about heart 
                disease and make our Nation healthier.

                In acknowledgement of the importance of the ongoing 
                fight against cardiovascular disease, the Congress, by 
                Joint Resolution approved on December 30, 1963, as 
                amended (36 U.S.C. 101), has requested that the 
                President issue an annual proclamation designating 
                February as American Heart Month.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, do hereby proclaim February 
                2017 as American Heart Month, and I invite all 
                Americans to participate in National Wear Red Day on 
                February 3, 2017. I also invite the Governors of the 
                States, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, officials of 
                other areas subject to the jurisdiction of the United 
                States, and the American people to join me in 
                recognizing and reaffirming our commitment to fighting 
                cardiovascular disease.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this

                United States of America the two hundred and forty-
