Thank you to our community who came out to attend this event. We enjoyed connecting with you and your hearts. We look forward to another heart event next February.
We are also celebrating Heart Health Month in the following ways:
American Heart Association’s Go Red Luncheon
Community Hospital and Tyler Heart Institute are proud sponsors of the AHA Go Red Luncheon at the Inn at Spanish Bay on Friday, February 17. Enjoy free heart screenings during the event. Registration is required.
Know your heart disease risk
Celebrate American Heart Month by completing our free online heart-health assessment: Learn your "heart age," estimated risk of developing heart disease, and find ways to support your heart's health. When you complete the assessment, you'll be entered in a drawing for a Fitbit heart rate monitor.
Red Hats for Our Babies
Babies born in our Family Birth Center will be given handmade red knit hats to raise awareness of congenital heart defects, the most common birth defect in the United States. Community Hospital is partnering with the American Heart Association in this “Little Hats, Big Hearts” campaign and many of the hats will be knitted by members of the hospital’s Auxiliary. The Family Birth Center routinely screens every newborn for heart defects. Learn more about congenital heart defects.
Hospital Going Red
The cypress tree in the entry plaza at Community Hospital will "go red" on Friday, February 3 as part of the national campaign to educate women about heart disease, their number one killer. The tree will be lit every evening to bring awareness and reduce the risk of heart disease.
