It’s time to WEAR RED! And be relentless in support of women’s health
We love February! Because that’s when we unite and stand up to heart disease in support of the American Heart Association National Wear Red Day, Friday February 1, 2019.
As the No. 1 killer of women, heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined, with 1 in 3 women dying each year of heart disease and stroke. Yet, 80 percent of cardiovascular disease today can be prevented through education and lifestyle changes. By knowing the facts, we can start to make lifestyle changes towards healthier living.
At higi, our mission is to make it easier for people to live their healthiest lives. Each day, at our over 10,000 higi health stations located in retail and pharmacy partners nationally, we encourage women (and men) to take the first step against heart disease by continually knowing and tracking their blood pressure screening numbers. Once consumers know their numbers, we make it easy to connect that information with trusted health care providers, pharmacist and other support resources so they can track their progress and team to move forward towards better health.
We hope you will join us in standing up to heart disease and wear red throughout the month of February. We are proud to wear red today and stand committed to providing the resources and motivation needed for consumers to stay engaged with their health and active in the prevention of heart disease.
Know your numbers and stand with us against heart disease. Find a higi station near you and take the first step forward towards living your healthiest.
