Go Red for Women
Many Rumford Hospital staff members gathered to have their photo taken on Go Red for Women Day.
RUMFORD -- The first Friday in February is Go Red for Women Day around the U.S.
It's a day aimed at increasing awareness of women and heart disease. Many people think of heart disease as a man's disease, but in reality heart disease kills more women than any other cause, more than cancer, more than accidents, more than respiratory disease.
Again this year the staff of Rumford Hospital wore red on February 1, and the volunteer Lobby Host passed out red dress pins to everyone who came through the door. At noon staff members gathered to have their photo taken in all their red splendor.
