Cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease and stroke, kill almost 1 in 3 women in each year. Here are a few ways you can "Go Red" this February.

WMMC encourages community members to give the gift of preventative heart health this Valentine's Day with a gift certificate for this screening, which can be purchased in the diagnostic imaging department (located off the outpatient entrance).

Babies born at Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital will be outfitted in red hats on February 2 in support of National Wear Red Day.

· Have a family history of heart disease.

Rosen said that in February the Get Heart Smart for Women campaign will focus on blanketing communities with education programs and a variety of events about healthy heart care.
