Go Red for Women Dinner


Go Red for Women Dinner
Friday, February 19, 2016
presented by St. Mary’s Hospital Cardiac and Vascular Services

The American Heart Association sponsors the Go Red for Women campaign and Wear Red Day to increase awareness of women’s risk of heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. But why a red dress logo? Because you can’t ignore a woman in red!

St. Mary’s wants you to know more, so you can do more to reduce your risk. So put on your red dress (or sweater or suit), baby, and join us.
