75 Cullman Women Rock The Red With Cullman Regional At Loft 212

Cullman Regional hosted the inaugural ‘Rock The Red‘ luncheon Friday at Loft 212.

Approximately 75 Cullman area women – all sporting various hues of blood red fashion – joined together to raise awareness and support the fight against heart disease.

The occasion was National Wear Red Day.

National Wear Red Day began in 2003. It is a joint venture between the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. For the last 15 years, they have been encouraging everyone to wear red on the first Friday of every February.

This National Wear Red Day is meant to increase awareness about cardiovascular awareness and promote healthy lifestyle changes, specifically for women.

Cullman Regional brought in super inspiring heart attack survivor, Susan Sellers. Sellers shared her story in luncheon’s keynote address:

After Susan Sellers concluded, a panel of esteemed physicians provided all attendees with practical, real-world insights into how the ladies can stay heart healthy.

February is National Heart Month.

In addition to the ‘Rock The Red’ luncheon, Cullman Regional employees joined together to raise awareness and support the fight against heart disease by wearing red on Friday:

Cherrie Haney, the Director of the Cullman County Economic Development, was one of several participants who took advantage of free cardiovascular health screening provided by Cullman Regional:

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), heart disease is the number one killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. Heart disease causes more deaths than all forms of cancer combined. It is often a “silent killer” with no symptoms.
