National Wear Red Day

Heart Disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths each year.  To raise awareness the American Heart Association's National Wear Red Day is  Friday, February 3




The US Dept of Agriculture has a suggestion for Valentines Day....  Give your Valentine something for the heart.  Share a heart healthy gift to to let people in your life know you care.  Instead of sweets give something that takes care of the heart! Make a healthy meal together for your spouse or family.  Cooking a meal helps you control portion sizes and the ingredients in your food.  


 

 

   
As a member of the health care community, we have a crucial role in amplifying the “United Against the Flu” message. 
   
 There's no "I" in "Team." Be a team player and take your whole family to get their flu shots.
