Go Red After Green and Gold

Sheboygan , Wis. — American Heart Month officially begins February 1. Though many will focus on green and gold the first week, there is still time after that to Go Red.

This month, St. Nicholas Hospital , along with Prevea Health, has joined in the effort to raise awareness of our nation's No. 1 killer. Among the activities:

Paint the Town Red – throughout February

  • We are helping area businesses communicate the importance of heart health to employees by making information available to them online (posters, table tents, flyers) to put in break rooms or cafeterias.
  • Businesses are encouraged to light the outsides of their buildings with red lights to show their support of the effort. At St. Nicholas, large red hearts will be lit, lighting up the sky around the building.
