Memorial Hospital recognized American Heart Health Month by hosting a “Go Red For Women” event on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at the Chester Country Club.  Attendees of the event enjoyed a heart healthy meal provided by Memorial’s Dietary Department.  Special guest speakers, Susan Sloop from the University of Illinois Extension Program, presented information on being mindful in a busy world, and Family Physician, Dr. Doyle Witt spoke about SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-based) for staying healthy.  Melissa Soellner, Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, and Kristi Williams, Registered Nurse, were available to administer free blood pressure and blood sugar checks as well. The evening was capped off with special “Go Red” prize giveaways.   Students from Chester High School’s National Honor Society donated their time in helping at the event.  The students were presented a monetary donation from Memorial Hospital.      

The “Go Red For Women” campaign encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life. In 2010, the American Heart Association set a strategic goal of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular disease and strokes by 20 percent while improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent by the year 2020.
