AWC Wears Red
Supporting women’s heart disease awareness

Yuma, AZ (January 29, 2013) --- On Wednesday, February 6, 2013, AWC students, staff and employees are invited to wear red to show their support for women's heart disease awareness.

This observance promotes the Red Dress symbol and provides an opportunity for everyone to unite in this life-saving awareness movement by showing off a favorite red dress, shirt, or tie, or Red Dress Pin.
By wearing ‘red’ and participating in this movement, you can help to give women a personal and urgent wakeup call about their risk of heart disease.

Yuma Regional Medical Center Heart Clinic Specialists will be on hand in the AWC Eatery on Wednesday, February 6th from 10am-2pm.
