UHS Goes Red on February 2 for women's heart health
You'll be seeing red all over UHS on Friday, Feb. 2. UHS will be joining with the American Heart Association and the national Go Red for Women organization to observe "Wear Red Day 2018." It's all part of a campaign across all 50 states to raise awareness about the seriousness of women's heart-health issues.
UHS staff and the public are invited to attend a special Wear Red Day ribbon-cutting ceremony, starting at 10 a.m., on Friday, Feb. 2, in the Lobby of UHS Vestal. Many members of the UHS family will appear sporting red sweaters, blouses, dresses, skirts, scarves, shirts, ties, vests or pocket handkerchiefs.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Heart attack symptoms in women may differ from those in men - so awareness is vitally important.
Women and men - join with UHS, The Heart Leader in the Southern Tier and home to the UHS Heart & Vascular Institute, in showing your support for greater heart awareness. Don something red and attend the UHS Vestal event if you can.
