MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital associates gathered to show their support for National Wear Red Day® on Thursday, Feb. 14. Wear Red Day® is part of the American Heart Association’s national campaign to build awareness and help stop heart disease among women in our lifetime.

Building awareness is vital because heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of one in three women each year.

Our hospital’s Occupational Health professionals provided free blood pressure (BP) screenings and educational materials, as well as a Go Red™ dress pin to any staff member who wore red.
