CCHD Goes Red to Bring Awareness to Heart Health

2/17/2016

February is Heart Health Month and February 5th was National Wear Red Day bringing awarness specifically to women's heart health. 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. Ddon’t forget to make your heart health a priority. Schedule your Well-Woman visit, a prevention check-up to review a woman’s overall health so her doctor can measure blood pressure, check cholesterol and look for signs of heart disease, stroke and other illnesses. Call the Medical Center of Dimmitt at 806.647.2194 to schedule your appointment today!
