However, too many don’t know what heart failure is, even though they might be at risk or already have the condition.
There is not a single face of heart failure. It affects people of all ages, genders, races, ethnicities and health. Look around your workplace, your school, your neighborhood and even your own home.
Anyone can experience heart failure, but some people are at greater risk than others.
65% of people say they wish they knew more about heart failure,
only 21% feel concern over their personal risk … even after identifying their specific age, gender and/or race as “at risk” for heart failure.
