The Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) and Lifespan are proud sponsors of several American Heart Association events in the region, including February’s National Wear Red Day and the Southern New England Go Red for Women Luncheon.
The Go Red for Women campaign is focused on empowering women with knowledge and tools to take charge of their heart health.
More women than men are affected by
heart disease. Most women don’t notice the symptoms of heart disease and stroke
until it is too late. Cardiovascular disease claims the lives of more than
400,000 females each year.
The American Heart Association is a
critical partner in CVI’s mission, whether it is championing breakthroughs in
research, advancing treatment and prevention, or promoting public awareness
about heart disease,” explained Samuel C. Dudley, MD, PhD, Cardiovascular
Institute chief of cardiology.
“Naturally, the CVI team and caregivers across Lifespan hospitals are
proud to support AHA’s effort in our community.”
The Cardiovascular Institute at Rhode
Island, The Miriam and Newport hospitals offers patients renowned physicians,
highly skilled and experienced nurses, the best and latest technology, and an
environment that’s most conducive to recovery.
