Why: Why Go Red? In the U.S., cardiovascular disease claims the life of approximately one woman every 80 seconds. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red For Women advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health. That’s why TriStar Health is joining the Go Red For Women movement to support educational programs designed to increase awareness of the effects of heart disease and help fund critical research about cardiovascular health. On Friday, February 1, area TriStar Health hospitals will celebrate National Wear Red Day® in a very special way. All newborns will receive a special red receiving blanket instead of the traditional blue, pink and white striped version. The goal is to honor the women in these babies’ lives – their moms, sisters, grandmothers or aunts – who could be or have been affected by heart disease.
