Go Red for Women
Every year, for a single day, the nation comes together to honor women on National Wear Red Day; a day dedicated to raising awareness for women’s heart health. This year, on Feb. 5, members of our dedicated care teams joined the initiative to Go Red for Women by donning red masks in support of raising awareness for heart disease.
As a health care provider, we know just how important it is to know your risk and get annual screenings. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer in women and is responsible for one in three deaths every year. Yet just one in five women believe cardiovascular disease is her greatest health risk.
As eighty percent of cardiac events are preventable, we can change course by making small lifestyle changes. To learn more about heart disease, including causes and prevention tips, please visit the American Heart Association website.
