Davis Health Employees ‘Go Red’ to Fight Heart Disease

Davis Health System will be joining the national movement “Go Red For Women” to raise awareness to fight heart disease, the number one killer of women.
 
DHS looks forward to participating this year in National Wear Red Day on Friday, Feb. 1, marking the 10-year anniversary of this nationwide campaign.
 
“We are proud that employees are making the commitment to Go Red because it’s important we raise awareness in our own community about cardiovascular disease, and how women often experience unique symptoms,” said Marjory Moses, Community Health Educator. "Only one in five women believes that heart disease is her most significant health threat. More deadly than all forms of cancer combined, heart disease continues to claim the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year." 
 
DHS will continue to celebrate “Heart Month” throughout February with a host of activities related to heart health. Heart Month will be kicked off with a National Wear Red Day.
 
In an effort to empower all adults to take charge of their heart health, Dr. David Tingler will lead a public educational seminar called "Change of Heart." The free seminar will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, in the DMH cafeteria overflow room. Several other health professionals join Dr. Tingler in a discussion about risks, medications, diet and other ways to improve heart health. Reserving a seat is recommended.
 
Other activities DHS will sponsor include a free Healthy Heart Screen from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Feb. 14 at HomePlus in Elkins. A finger stick screening will be available for people to check their blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Blood pressure checks will also be conducted. Appointments are not necessary; however, overnight fasting is recommended.
 
The community can also expect to see informational displays about Heart Health throughout the various DHS entities during the month of February. 
 
The American Heart Association Go Red For Women is a national movement that empowers women to work together to wipe out heart disease. Funds raised by Go Red For Women allow the American Heart Association to help women by offering educational programs, increasing women’s understanding about their risk for heart disease and support research to discover scientific knowledge about heart health.
