Sarasota, FL – The physicians and staff of MAXhealth will be wearing RED on Friday, February 7, 2014 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the American Heart Association’s “GO RED Day”.
In an effort to create awareness about heart disease among women, the American Heart Association designated February 7 as
“GO RED Day”. Nearly 1,100 women die each day from heart disease.
MAXhealth promotes heart disease awareness by encouraging patients, staff and families to:
Get your numbers – Ask your doctor about blood pressure and cholesterol.
Own your lifestyle – Stop smoking, lose weight, exercise and eat healthy.
Realize your risk – We think it won’t happen to us, but heart disease kills 1 in 3 women.
Educate your family – Make healthy food choices for you and your family. Teach your children the importance of staying active.
Don’t be silent – Tell every woman you know that heart disease is the #1 killer
“More people die from heart disease than all types of cancer combined. We encourage our patients and members of our MAXhealth family to work with their physicians to prevent heart attacks and strokes by living healthy lives” said Inita Bedi, Chief Operating Officer of MAXhealth.
February is the 50th Anniversary of American Heart Month. Nearly 84 million American live with some form of heart disease, and more women have died from heart disease than men every year since 1984.
