To support the American Heart Association and Wear Red Day, TeamHealth is inviting you to wear red tomorrow, Friday, February 1!
On National Wear Red Day, millions of Americans will join together in the fight against heart disease in women by wearing red! Heart disease is still the number one killer of women, causing one in three deaths each year. More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined.
The American Heart Association’s 2020 Impact Goal is to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20%. To achieve that goal, it is vital for Americans to understand their true health status. Currently, 39% of Americans think they are in ideal health when in reality, less than 1% have an ideal health profile. Supporting the American Heart Association allows them to continue funding cutting-edge research, conducting lifesaving public and professional education programs and advocating to protect public health.
Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart-healthy life.
TeamHealth clinicians and associates at all locations are incouraged to wear red and take photo to share on social media! Please send your photos to Lance_McCluskey@teamhealth.com. If you are at our National Support Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, please join us in the lobby at 10:30 a.m. for a quick picture.
Join TeamHealth by wearing red tomorrow to show your support! #WearRedandGive
