ARMC to “Go Red” for Women’s Heart Health

ARMC to “Go Red”  for Women’s Heart Health

ARMC will host an interactive event to support women’s heart health

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) will be holding an upcoming “Go Red” interactive event to promote women’s heart health. Each year, ARMC hosts this event at its hospital in support of American Heart Month and the American Heart Association (AHA), who created the “Go Red” initiative.

The “Go Red” event invites participants to wear red and participate in a fashion show. The event will also provide educational and interactive sessions on heart disease and strokes and their signs and symptoms. Participants will learn AHA’s “Life’s Simple Seven” steps to live a long and healthy life—getting active, eating better, losing weight, quitting smoking, controlling cholesterol, managing blood pressure, and reducing blood sugar.

The event will take place on March 31, 2022, from 12–1:30 p.m., in the Oak Conference Room, and will be open to the public as well as ARMC employees. ARMC staff from a range of departments will participate in this event, including physicians and nurses who will provide information and demonstrations.

Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. The American Heart Association launched its “Go Red” campaign in 2004 to increase awareness of the dangers of heart disease and advocate for women’s heart health.
