KISSIMMEE, FL – Today is the day to wear RED, and employees at Osceola Regional Medical Center are rocking their rouge in support of National Wear Red Day®.
The national public awareness day is held the first Friday of each February. The American Heart Association urges women across the country to wear RED to bring attention to cardiovascular disease.
Statistics from the American Heart Association show heart disease is the number one killer of women, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. The disease kills approximately one woman every minute.
Osceola Regional recognizes the importance of heart health not just on Wear RED Day, but every day.
Every month, physicians from the hospital hold free community luncheons, as part of their “Healing Hearts in Wheels” initiative. Residents receive tips and advice on how to improve and maintain their heart health.
Also, during the month of February, the hospital will hold a series of educational seminars, screenings and community events to bring attention to the seriousness of cardiovascular disease.
If you would like to sign up for a free cardiac risk profile screening during the month of February, please call (800) 447-8206. If you are interested in attending one of our events, please visit www.OsceolaRegional.com and view the calendar of events.
