The Sanford Vermillion Cardiac Rehabilitation Department recently had the pleasure of being introduced to the Women Heart organization. This organization is a patient-centered advocacy group serving women living with heart disease. The goal is to educate women on the importance of taking charge of their heart health and support women living with heart disease.
Holly Brydl-Andrews is a trained Women Heart Champion with this organization and recently provided the Sanford Vermillion Cardiac Rehab Department with red scarves. The scarves are knitted or crocheted by women throughout the country and donated to the Women Heart Organization. The scarves are then distributed to women who are survivors of heart disease.
These red scarves signify the importance of developing research and policies to support the 42 million American women living with or at risk of heart disease.
