National Wear Red Day® – Friday, February 2, 2018

National Wear Red Day 2018 at Speare Memorial Hospital (18)Go Red For Women is a movement that starts with you. Lead by example and make the time to “Know Your Numbers.” It’s knowledge that could save your life.

Five numbers, that all women should know to take control of their heart health are:

  1. Total Cholesterol
  2. HDL (good) Cholesterol
  3. Blood Pressure
  4. Blood Sugar
  5. Body Mass Index (BMI).

 

Knowing these numbers can help women and their healthcare provider determine their risk for developing cardiovascular diseases. It’s time for all women to learn the most critical numbers in their life — their hearts depend on it.

Chances are we all know someone affected by heart disease and stroke, because about 2200 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day. That’s an average of one death every forty seconds. But together we can change that. Cardiovascular diseases, which includes stroke, claim the lives of about one woman every 80 seconds unnecessarily — because about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable with education and action.

On Friday, February 2, 2018 many employees at Speare Memorial Hospital took part in National Wear Red Day® which provides an opportunity for everyone to unite to raise awareness about the fact that heart disease and stroke kill more women than all cancers combined.
