#GoRed was a hit at Althea Woodland! Check out some of our staff and residents that supported Go Red For Women by participating in National Wear Red Day® on Friday, February 5, 2016 for American Heart Month. Please remember to make your heart health a priority!
Our mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends are at risk. Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – more than all cancers combined. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.
Get informed about the risks of heart disease and stroke. Know the red flags. Know your heart health story. Go Red For Women inspires women to make lifestyle changes, mobilize communities, and shape policies to save lives. United, we are working to improve the health of women in your community.
Please Join us in celebration of National Wear Red Day® — the first Friday each February — is our special day to bring attention to this staggering fact. We encourage everyone to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives.
Help us spread the word about National Wear Red Day® and our fight against heart disease in women. Get tips on how you can get involved. Go to GoRedForWomen.org/WearRedDay.
