As an important part of our firm’s culture, withum fully supports health and wellness initiatives in the workplace. Living a healthy, full life is something we should all be striving for each and every day.
February is American Heart Month. The members of Withum’s Women’s Leadership Development Initiative (WLDI) have organized a week of awareness and education related to heart disease and prevention through healthy living for both men and women. These efforts are to promote the Go Red for Women program supporting the mission of the American Heart Association.
Did you know that heart disease is not only the No. 1 killer of women, but the leading cause of death in the United States? It’s a shocking fact. We hope you will support the cause this week by wearing red on Tuesday, viewing the various videos and articles that will be shared, giving one of the heart healthy recipes you’ll be seeing a try, and making a Jeans Day donation to the American Heart Association on Friday.
Too busy to think about heart disease? Spend just one minute watching this video, “What it Means to Go Red.”
Get your numbers
Own your lifestyle
Realize your risk
Education your family
Don’t be silent
The Go Red initiative presents a great opportunity to think about the importance of heart health. For yourself and for those you love, find out your risk for heart disease by scheduling a health screening with your doctor or, at the very least, by participating in the health screening we provide to our staff in June. More information will be shared by members of WLDI shortly.
Have a great – and healthy – week.
