: Information is the No. 1 key to prevention. This pocket slider gives your customers the knowledge they need to make healthy lifestyle changes to improve their heart health. By pulling the information card, people can learn about contributing factors, important medical tests, the role of stress and heart disease, and how diet and exercise lower their risk of cardiovascular disease. Your logo is highly visible on the front panel, while additional heart health information is available on the back.
For an even stronger push, use the pocket slider to enhance your company's social media efforts. Ask customers to share their healthy lifestyle changes with your communities on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.

Help your customers cope with day-to-day stress with this squeezable heart. You can display your logo, phone number, email address or other contact information on the polyurethane foam stress ball.
To continue the dialogue about stress and heart disease, create a quiz on your company's website in which customers can gauge their stress levels. Or, support a charity devoted to mental health or stress management.

It has the best of both worlds: adults will think it's practical while their kids will get a kick out of collecting them. The bands are packaged in an imprinted case that builds your brand.
Boost the success of this campaign by asking customers to wear the heart-shaped bands on February 4 and upload photos of themselves decked out in red onto your website.
