FORT RUCKER, Ala. (Feb. 4, 2016) -- Lyster Army Health Clinic reminds everyone to keep hearts on their minds as February begins – and not just the Valentine’s Day kind.
February is American Heart Month, an annual observance to bring awareness to cardiovascular disease – the nation’s No. 1 killer.
LAHC will be showing support for Healthy Heart Month and the GoRed! for Women Campaign by wearing red and providing educational outreach in the clinic Feb. 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. People are invited to stop by to learn more about ways to reduce their risk of heart attack and heart disease.
Feb. 5 is National Wear Red Day, part of the Go Red for Women movement launched over a decade ago by the American Heart Association to bring attention to the fact that heart disease is not just a man’s disease. On this day, everyone is encouraged to wear red and to commit to making lifestyle changes to live longer, healthier lives.
