February 20, 2014 – Englewood Hospital and Medical Center employees joined the American Heart Association’s national movement to help end heart disease and stroke in women by showing off their red threads on “National Wear Red Day.”
Heart disease is the number one killer of women, taking the life of one in three every year. The “Go Red for Women” campaign aims to boost awareness and reduce those alarming statistics.
“Prevention and awareness is key when it comes to fighting heart disease,” said Lori Villa, Special Events Planner at Englewood Hospital. “We look forward to this event every year and are proud to join this nationwide effort to educate women – and their loved ones – about heart disease.”
