Valley County Health System Employees Take Part in National Wear Red Day


ORD, Neb. – February is American Heart Month and in an effort to bring awareness, Valley County Health System (VCHS) employees took part in the National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 2.  

According to the American Heart Association, about 2,300 Americans die of cardiovascular disease (CVD) each day, an average of 1 death every 38 seconds. More than 90 million Americans carry a diagnosis of CVD.

The chance of developing cardiovascular disease can be reduced by making healthy choices. There are a number of things you can do to improve your heart health and lower your risk by as much as 80 percent: control your blood pressure and cholesterol, stay at a healthy weight, eat a healthy diet, get regular exercise, limit alcohol intake and manage stress.
