Celebrating National Wear Red Day

By Katie Pence
Published March 2010

More than 60 UC Health employees, adorned in all shades of red, attended the UC Health University Hospital and UC College of Medicine’s National Wear Red Day event Feb. 5.

The event was held to raise awareness about the nation’s No. 1 killer: heart disease. 

Attendees had an opportunity to have their blood pressure checked and to sign up for the American Heart Association’s Mini Marathon and Heart Walk, being held March 28.

In addition, those present met and had their photo taken with the UC Bearcat and heard talks by numerous spokespeople, including 35-year-old patient Aimee Brown who was pregnant when diagnosed with heart failure.

"We’re dedicated to fighting this disease and raising as much money as we can,” said Gyasi Chisley, vice president of operations at University Hospital, in speaking about the importance of the upcoming mini marathon and walk.
