February marks American Heart Month, a time to take action to end heart disease and stroke. Sutter Health Plus proudly sponsors the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Initiative, starting with Heart Month & Wear Red Day on Feb. 3, 2017.
“Heart disease is a devastating disease affecting millions of Americans,” says Monica Majors, vice president of Strategic Sales and Marketing at Sutter Health Plus. “In 2017, we’re a proud sponsor of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Initiative to help prevent heart disease and stroke.”
Sutter Health Plus employees are supporting the Go Red for Women Initiative by wearing red on Feb. 3; distributing co-branded heart-healthy materials to employer groups; and providing Go Red Cookbooks at employer wellness events. Sutter Health Plus representatives will also attend the Go Red for Women Luncheon on May 19, 2017 in Sacramento.
The American Heart Association estimates that heart disease and stroke kill one woman every 80 seconds, and causes one in three deaths among women each year. Approximately 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events can be prevented with education and action. Sponsoring the Go Red for Women Initiative is one way Sutter Health Plus supports and promotes heart health.
