Crouse Hospital Goes Red to Commemorate February as American Heart Month

02/01/13

Clock Tower Red Hearts - newsToday is National Wear Red Day, part of the American Heart Association's ongoing Go Red for Women campaign, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Many Crouse employees - women and men - are decked out in red today in support of Go Red and National Heart Month.


Starting this evening, the iconic Crouse clock tower will be illuminated in red all during February to help raise awareness in our community about the prevalence of heart disease, much of which is preventable through lifestyle changes, knowing one's risk factors and knowing the signs and symptoms of a heart attack.

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.
