Join Rapides Regional Medical Center employees as they promote women’s heart health on National Wear Red Day, Friday, Feb. 7. This one-day event will take place nationwide – and include millions of women, companies, community organizations and cities. Everyone can participate. All you have to do is wear your favorite red dress, shirt or tie to build awareness of the fact that heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women.
The Heart Health Profiler calculates your risk for cardiovascular disease based on your answers to questions related to smoking, stress, family history, diabetes, previous heart health and medications. The test takes just a few minutes to complete.
Rapides Regional Medical Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s standards for health care quality and safety in hospitals.
Teaching your children about heart health will pay dividends in their older years, a heart expert says.
Youngsters with heart-healthy behaviors are less likely to develop heart disease later in life, said Dr. Susan Haynes, an assistant professor in the cardiology division at Saint Louis University.
That's a message that bears repeating during February, which is designated American Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading killer of American women and men.
