Hearts Dance at the Clinical Center Atrium: NHLBI event promotes heart-healthy choices

Everyone's blood was pumping in the Clinical Center atrium Feb.1 as people danced for the #OurHearts Dance Together event coordinated by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).

Led by NHLBI director Dr. Gary Gibbons, many donned red for National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about heart health and move to the beat of heart-pumping music. This year's theme, #OurHearts, emphasized the power of social support in helping people make heart-healthy choices.

NHLBI continued Heart Month events through February, including live cooking demonstrations at the Clinical Center atrium Feb. 14 featuring heart-healthy foods.
