BLUEFIELD (NEWS RELEASE) - February 1, 2013 marks the 10th Year of the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement – 10 years of fighting to save women's lives from heart disease.  Bluefield Regional Medical Center is ready to rise to the challenge and make this year a turning point in the fight against heart disease. 

According to Mr. Bill Hawley, BRMC's CEO, "We are encouraging all employees to wear red on Friday, February 1st to promote awareness of Women's Heart Health.  Heart disease is still the number one killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year, at an average rate of one death per minute.  We want to be a part of changing the statistics.  By participating in the Go Red campaign, you can too."

With the addition of two new board certified interventional cardiologists to the medical staff, BRMC would like to invite the entire community to the hospital on February 1st to meet Dr. Javed Abdullah and Dr. Mohannad Bisharat.  A reception will be held in Conference Room B from Noon to 12:30 p.m.  The Cherry Street Café will provide a "Heart Healthy" lunch menu and the first 30 participants will enjoy a free lunch! 

A free blood pressure screening will also be provided in the cafeteria from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.  Everyone that participates in the screening will receive a "Red Dress" pin.  Information about the importance of Women's Heart Health will be available throughout the month.  For more information, contact Bluefield Cardiology at (304) 325-1982.
