Make everyday Wear Red Day!
Our staff will be wearing RED and jeans on Friday, February 5 to show our support for the fact that heart disease affects everyone! Heart disease doesn’t care if you are a man or woman, young or old, healthy or not. We all need to learn what we can do to prevent heart disease. Heart disease is a killer. We often deny the symptoms associated with a heart attack and the symptoms women experience are much different than those experienced by men.
Symptoms of a heart attack often include: chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath, a cold sweat, nausea and fatigue. Women often experience jaw, upper back, shoulder or arm pain instead of the chest pain.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s time to call 911 to get help on the way!
