Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
The Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) (http://www.shapesociety.org), a nonprofit organization that promotes public awareness and early detection of heart attacks and stroke, is excited to introduce the Valentie™ , a fashionable red tie with a stylistic heart motif that is indicative of SHAPE's healthy heart mission.
Dr. Morteza Naghavi, the organization's founder said, "We are most pleased to launch our new Valentie™ in conjunction with both Valentine's Day and American Heart Month. It's our aim that all those who wear it become aware of the risks of cardiovascular disease and the need to know their plaque score."
SHAPE’s work to increase public awareness of how to prevent heart attacks and stroke by knowing their plaque score is growing as a result of efforts like the Valentie™. It symbolizes the fight to eradicate heart disease and champions the quest for a cure.
Proceeds from the sale of the Valentie™ go to support SHAPE’s efforts to launch its outreach program to bring free cardiovascular screening to the community, especially to those who have no indications of arterial blockages that could cause a sudden cardiac or stroke event.
The Valentie™ can be purchased at http://shapesociety.org/valentie
