SDCCU supports Love Your Heart Week of Action in partnership with the County of San Diego and Live Well San DiegoSAN DIEGO, Calif., (February 10, 2022) – San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of Southern California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, is proud to support Love Your Heart Week of Action in partnership with the County of San Diego and Live Well San Diego. Love Your Heart Week of Action, February 12-20, encourages the community to join the heart health movement by taking advantage of free blood pressure screenings offered throughout San Diego, along with heart health tips, resources and events.
“We are proud to support the County of San Diego and Live Well San Diego and raise awareness about the importance of the Love Your Heart initiative,” said Teresa Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO. “Love Your Heart makes it easy for members of our community to take charge of their own heart health by getting to know their blood pressure numbers and learning more about how to stay safe and healthy.”
Love Your Heart is an annual event in which organizations from across the U.S. and Mexico join together to provide FREE blood pressure screenings to the public on or near Valentine's Day. This year’s event offers a number of public-facing screening sites, but encourages at-home screenings and increased education and promotion of heart-healthy activities and information. High blood pressure is the most common underlying condition identified in San Diego County’s COVID-associated deaths. Love Your Heart is held in support of the Live Well San Diego vision to create healthy, safe and thriving communities in San Diego County.
