Raising afib awareness is intensely personal for StopAfib.org founder, Mellanie True Hills, and led her to create the first Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month in 2007. Working with other organizations, Hills helped urge the U.S. Senate to officially designate National Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month in September 2009.
This roundup recaps what happened during Afib Month 2011, including the involvement of singer-songwriter Barry Manilow, a fellow afib patient. It also talks about the rollout of new content and capabilities at StopAfib.org. For more information, see:
