Go Red for Women
The first Friday in February is National Wear Red Day, an annual event of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign. Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital and the Bloomsdale Medical Centre joined women and men across the country in wearing red to raise awareness about heart disease.
Heart disease is the number one cause of death for women in the U.S. In 2004, the American Heart Association formed the Go Red for Women campaign to educate women about the risks and facts surrounding heart disease and stroke.
