Celebrating National Wear Red Day: Reminding Women to Care for their Hearts



The staff at Carilion Cardiothoracic Surgery show their support for preventing heart disease in women by wearing matching, custom-made t-shirts on National Wear Red Day.

Wearing Red shows support for patients suffering from and those at risk for heart disease and it kicks off the American Heart Association's Heart Month.
