Babies Wear Red for Heart Disease Awareness

      

St. Vincent’s Health System babies wore red caps for the American Heart Association’s 15th Annual National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 3, 2017.  It’s a part of the “Go Red for Women” campaign to build awareness of heart disease, which is the number one killer of women. St. Vincent’s has partnered with the American Heart Association on the “Go Red For Women” campaign to help educate women on the disease and its symptoms, which are often difficult to detect. “St. Vincent’s wants to educate as many women as possible about heart disease, because the more they know about the disease, the better chance they have of beating it,” said Neeysa Biddle, Senior Vice President, Ascension Healthcare; President/CEO of St. Vincent’s Health System (STVHS).  “We have a longstanding reputation as a leader in cardiovascular services. By combining our expertise and experience with the American Heart Association’s ‘Go Red for Women’ efforts, we’re able to bring a better understanding of the disease to the community and ultimately, save lives.” To learn more about the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign, visit www.goredforwomen.org †
