Wearing red to raise awareness of women's heart health
February is Heart Month in Canada, a time to raise awareness about cardiovascular health.
Did you know that in this country, heart disease is the leading cause of premature death for women, and symptoms of heart disease go unrecognized in 53 per cent of women? However, heart disease is largely preventable: about 80 per cent of risk factors are within a person's control to change.
It's time for a heart-to-heart...
On Feb. 13, for the second year in a row, friends and colleagues of Toronto Rehab's Rumsey Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation team wore red to show support for the Wear Red Canada national campaign, which was started by the Canadian Women's Heart Health Alliance advocacy working group last year.
Patients, staff and community members participated in several learning and awareness events throughout the week. From a hearty meal provided by Bairrada and Grocery Gateway, to entertainment supporting the women in our lives, the event had it all!
Recognizing that socioeconomic status is a predictor of health, participants were also able to help women and children in need by donating more than $1,000 in personal items to the
Women's Habitat Shelter.
Congratulations to all that participated in this successful event.
