Wear Red for Heart Health

Wear Red for Heart Health

February is heart health month, and Friday, February 1 is National Wear Red Day. The physicians and staff at Prime Care Family Practice will be wearing our best red on February 1 in support of heart health. Join us in the effort to bring awareness to heart health!

The Go Red for Women website says cardiovascular disease kills more women than the next four leading causes of death combined. 80% of cardiac events (such as heart attacks and strokes) in women could be prevented if we make the right choices including diet, exercise and not smoking.
