Employees #GoRed for #WearRedDay
Employees dressed in red on Friday, Feb. 7, for National Wear Red Day, a day to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined. The health department also held a social media campaign on this day by posting a series of messages on the health department’s Facebook and Twitter pages using the #GoRed and #WearRedDay tags.
Did we miss your picture? Remember, on special recognition days like this (or any day really), we encourage you to take pictures with your co-workers and send them to Greg Hiles via email, and we’ll be glad to share them in some form!
