Rockland — February is American Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, but heart disease is preventable and controllable.

Learn how by attending the following Healthy Heart Month - Go Red Workshop Thursday, Feb. 20, at 10:30 a.m. at Knox Community Center, 61 Park St.
