On this Valentine's Day weekend, a local hospital hopes to raise awareness about the importance of heart health.
February is Heart Awareness Month, and Mayo Clinic Health System partnered with Oakwood Mall in Eau Claire to host the Healthy Heart Fair.
The fair included free health screenings, informational booths, and activities for kids.
Dr. Andrew Calvin, a cardiologist with Mayo Clinic Health System, said each year around 600,000 Americans die from heart disease. It's the number one killer of men and women in the U.S.
The goal with Saturday's fair was to talk about risk factors for heart disease and to show basic ways to improve heart health.
"I think it's important to be aware of what we can do to improve our health so we can live a full, normal, healthy life without any restrictions," said Dr. Calvin.
This the 17th year for the Healthy Heart Fair.
