MVH Hosts Fourth Annual “Go Red” Events Feb. 16
Did you know that one out of every four people dies of heart disease in the United States every year, and heart disease is the leading cause of death among men and women? Have you heard that on average, one American dies from stroke every four minutes? If you have been neglecting your heart health, it’s time to heed the warnings from experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Heart/American Stroke Association. Since February is National Heart Awareness Month, this is the perfect time to start getting your heart healthier or to enhance your existing wellness programs.
On Tuesday, Feb. 16, Monongahela Valley Hospital is hosting the fourth annual “Go Red Washington County” heart education and awareness program. The event will be held from noon to 3 p.m. at the Center for Fitness and Health in the Mon-Vale HealthPLEX in Rostraver. Free blood pressure screenings and stroke risk assessments will be offered from noon to 3 p.m. Simultaneous hour-long fitness and cooking demonstrations will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. The event is free and open to adults all off ages. Free refreshments and giveaways will be provided.
Since seating is limited, those planning to attend are required to RSVP by calling 724-258-1333.
“Each year, we try to create a “Go Red” event that will help members of the community begin their journeys to heart-healthy lifestyles,” said Louis J. Panza Jr., president and CEO of Monongahela Valley Hospital. “The program we have planned for Feb. 16 combines education with fun.”
“Go Red Washington County” was established in 2013 for men and women by the three hospitals in Washington County.
