MECAW Committee Supports Wear Red Wednesdays for Women’s Heart Health

  The MECAW committee would like to support Women’s Heart Health by having staff participate in “Wear Red Wednesdays”. Staff will be encouraged to wear red every Wednesday in the month Of February.

Why go Red? Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. That’s why this year we are asking that you wear red on Wednesday’s and help raise awareness.

We will have a heart healthy Red Delicious apple available in the café on Wednesdays at no cost to all employees participating and wearing red.

Please send along photos of employees wearing red to Jenn London at jlondon@mayohospital.com
