Bladen Community College Health and Wellness Committee kicked off the observance of American Heart Month by wearing red on National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 1st.
On the first Friday of every February, people across the nation come together by wearing red to raise awareness that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. Heart disease and stroke claim the lives of 1 in 3 women – a third of our mothers, sisters and friends. Bladen Community College employees hope to change that fact.
While nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented through education and lifestyle changes, cardiovascular diseases continue to be a woman’s greatest health threat. Join BCC employees and wear red the entire month of February to advocate for change for better women’s health.
