Go Red for Women

What: HPS Pays It Forward is proud to support the American Heart Association in bringing awareness to women’s heart health throughout the month of February. Heart disease is the number one killer among women and kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. It is often called the silent killer, because victims don’t even know they have it. The good news is that 80% of heart disease in women is curable and more women are beating heart disease than ever before. Join HPS in promoting the heart health of its female employees throughout the month of February by participating in various awareness initiatives.

When: All HPS offices will celebrate Go Red for Women throughout the month of February by offering heart healthy break room snacks, prevention tips and blood pressure screenings. The month-long festivities will kick off on Friday, February 5 at 4pm with our first “Cheers for Charity” event.
