MURRAY-CALLOWAY COUNTY HOSPITAL RECOGNIZES GO RED FOR AMERICAN HEART MONTH

Posted 01/30/2017

Go Red for WomenMurray-Calloway County Hospital encourages you to Love Your Heart in recognition of American Heart Month in February.

MCCH invites members of the community to participate in National Wear Red day by wearing red on Friday, February 3. Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action.

In recognition of National Wear Red day, an open house will be held in Cardiac Rehab at our new facility on Friday, February 3 from 7:30 am – 9:30 am. Free blood pressure checks and educational material will be available at their new location in Suite 185 West on the first floor of the Medical Arts Building. Also, community members are invited to meet our new Cardiologist, Dr. John Broadbent.

In addition a door prize drawing for roses will be given away. If you or your business or organization participates in National Wear Red day, be sure to post your Go Red pictures on the Murray-Calloway County Hospital Facebook page and help create awareness about the importance of a healthy heart.

Take part in creating awareness about cardiovascular disease and provide an important reminder that it is never too early to take action to protect our health. To learn more about GO Red, call the MCCH Marketing Dept. at 762-1381 or visit www.goredforwomen.org.
