Bring your baby to 'Wear Red Day'

January 23, 2019

Dress your baby in red and bring him or her with you when you come to "National Wear Red Day," the 2019 UHS ribbon-cutting event at 10 a.m., Friday, Feb. 1, at UHS Vestal.

What's more, Mom or Dad, sister or brother, dress up in red yourself! Wear a red scarf, sweater, shirt, tie or other article of clothing when you attend the ceremony to help raise awareness about the prevalence of heart disease in women.

February is American Heart Month, with UHS participating in a big way in the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" nationwide campaign, which underscores the importance of recognizing women's unique heart attack symptoms.

The Feb. 1 event also raises public awareness about congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the world.

If you'd like to bring your baby, up to six months old, to the event, contact Megan Farmer of UHS Stay Healthy at 607-763-6722 or megan.farmer@nyuhs.org.

If you participate, you will receive a free, red crocheted hat for your baby and red heart pins for members of your family to wear.
