On Friday, February 5, 2010, employees of Scott & White Healthcare will “Go Red for Women” to support awareness of heart disease and stroke in women, sponsored by the Scott & White Heart & Vascular Institute.
Everyone can show support for the fight against heart disease in women by wearing red. Men can show their support, too, by wearing red ties, shirts, sweaters and socks. It’s an easy, powerful way to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke, and throughout the Scott & White system clinics and hospitals our patients and visitors will see the color red.
The American Heart Association says that when someone joins the “Go Red For Women” movement, they become part of the fight against heart disease, the #1 killer of women in America.
The color red now stands for the ability all women have to improve their heart health and live stronger, longer lives because of the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day campaign. ®National Wear Red Day is a registered trademark of the H.H.S. and the American Heart Association.
We invite you to join with us and help spread awareness!
