Speare Spotlights The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Movement

My Life Check® was designed by the American Heart Association with the goal of improved health by educating the public on how best to live. These measures have one unique thing in common: any person can make these changes, the steps are not expensive to take and even modest improvements to your health will make a big difference. Start with one or two. This simple, seven-step list has been developed to deliver on the hope we all have–to live a long, productive healthy life.


On February 3, 2017, many employees at Speare Memorial Hospital took part in National Wear Red Day®  to help raise awareness among local women that heart disease is their #1 health threat.

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement focuses on women’s heart health awareness in February because far too many women are still unaware of the facts that heart disease is their number one killer, or that the symptoms of heart attack can be different in women vs. men, causing women to delay seeking treatment; or that ninety percent of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke. This lack of awareness means that more women than men are dying from heart disease and stroke. Go Red For Women’s goal is to save women’s lives.

Sold out crowd makes Speare Memorial Hospital’s 6th Annual Women’s Health Event a Smashing Success

The torrential downpour on Thursday, April 7, 2016 didn’t dampen the spirit of the sold-out crowd attending Speare Memorial Hospital’s 6th annual Wine, Women & Wisdom event in Plymouth, NH. This event is the hospital’s annual ladies night where learning and socializing are keys to rejuvenating, re-energizing and rejoicing in the similarities and differences that unite all women.
