EGC Goes Red in February
February is American Heart Month, when the nation comes together to bring awareness to the issue of women and heart health, and EGC’s President Nicole Penn was honored at the American Heart Association’s (AHA) 19th Annual Long Island “Go Red for Women” Luncheon for her commitment towards reaching the goal of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular disease and strokes in women, while improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans.
Heart disease is more deadly for women than all forms of cancer combined, as it claims the lives of more than 500,000 American women each year. The AHA helps to curb this very preventable disease through its “Go Red for Women” movement. This movement challenges all women to learn about the range of cardiovascular disease symptoms and how action can be taken to reduce their personal risk by providing them with tools they need to lead a heart-healthy life.

On the first Friday of February, National Wear Red Day, the EGC Group supported the efforts of AHA by wearing red – and also by enjoying a heart-healthy breakfast. The team at EGC is proud help advance AHA’s work towards reaching the goal of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular disease and strokes in women while improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans.
