Saint Mary’s physicians, nurses, administrators and staff will be participating in the American Heart Association’s national Wear Red Day® on February 5 to raise awareness about heart disease. Throughout February, which is American Heart Month, Saint Mary’s will further support the American Heart Association by “glowing red” for women.
