Providence Launches Ad Campaign for Heart Month and Invites Caregivers to Wear Red this Friday, Feb. 6

Published February 2, 2015 

February is National Heart Month and Providence will promote Heart Disease Prevention across our regions. The campaign encourages readers to take an online heart risk assessment, and offers regional information to those who go to the website.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US for both men and women and can strike without warning. There are some things we can’t control that put us at risk for heart disease (hereditary and age), but there are many things we can control (diet, exercise, blood pressure). Our campaign encourages people to take a free heart assessment and see if they are at risk for heart disease and steps for health improvement.

To support the campaign, newspaper ads will be running in Everett, Marysville, Arlington, Monroe and Skagit Valley. There will also be online advertising through local online news and health sites and Facebook along with posters at all PMG clinics. Finally, we encourage all caregivers to show their support by wearing RED on National Wear Red Day/Heart Disease Awareness for Women, on Friday, February 6

All caregivers are invited to share their red photos with NW Communications so we can show our support for women and the importance of heart health. Also, stay tuned for upcoming articles in the The Latest that discuss more on heart health and American Heart Month, which is recognized throughout February.
