Go Red for Women Day at Crouse Hospital

02/03/12

Lynn Shorpiro NewsToday is National Wear Red Day, part of the American Heart Association's ongoing Go Red for Women campaign. Many Crouse employees - women and men - have been decked out in red today in support of Go Red and National Heart Month.

 

One such woman is Lynn Shopiro, BSN, nurse manager of 4 North Irving, Crouse Hospital's Cardiac Care Unit. "I always wear red on Go Red for Women Day to show my support for the initiative," said Lynn, who has cared for those with cardiovascular disease for years. "My support today, however, is to help raise awareness particularly about the incidence of heart disease in women."

 

According to the American Heart Association, more women die each from cardiac-related conditions than from breast cancer. "It's important that women know these statistics and their risk factors and do what they can to keep their hearts healthy," Lynn says. "Talk to your own physician about your heart health and take time to check out the resources below.

 

While we hope you'll say 'Take Me to Crouse' if you're having chest pain or suspect a heart attack, I'd really rather not see you on 4 North. We want your heart to stay healthy and strong."
