Health Care Professionals "Go-Red" for Heart Health
On Friday, February 5th, St. Catherine of Siena’s health care professionals wore red in support of Go Red For Women.
Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association's national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women because it’s not just a man’s disease. In fact, more women than men die every year from heart disease and stroke. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red For Women advocates for more research and swifter action for women's heart health. The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement is nationally sponsored by Macy's, with additional support from our cause supporters.
St. Catherine’s health care professionals provided free blood pressure screenings and information in the lobby, sponsored by the the hospital's Community Outreach Program.
