Go Red Show Your Support on Friday Feb 3

Each year about 500,000 women lose their lives to heart disease. Yet many women don't think of this disease as a major concern. The national campaign "Go Red" aims to raise awareness and educate women about the risk of heart disease – the number-one killer of American women (and men).

Each year about 500,000 women lose their lives to heart disease. Yet many women don't think of this disease as a major concern. The national campaign "Go Red" aims to raise awareness and educate women about the risk of heart disease – the number-one killer of American women (and men). The color red was chosen because it evokes passion and confidence – and signals change.
On Friday, Feb. 3, and through out the month of February, MeritCare Heart Center invites people across the region to wear red in support of women who have been touched by heart disease. "Go Red" stickers are being routed to all MeritCare locations for distribution to associates, patients and visitors.

At Fargo's downtown and South University campus', stickers and red dress pins (limited number) will be available at Guest Service desks. They will not be routed to your department, so stop by and pick them up! Also, patient information will be available in the Consumer Education Center in the new north lobby of the downtown Fargo campus. If you would like to order your own Red Dress Pin, contact your local American Heart Association or visit www.americanheart.org.

Go Red for Women is a program of the American Heart Association and sponsored by Macy's and Pfizer.
