It was National Wear Red Day! The Cardiac Rehabilitation Department at Wayne Memorial Hospital, Honesdale, marked the American Heart Association’s (AHA) annual Wear Red Day on Friday, February 3rd, by doing just that—wearing red. Cardiac Rehab staffers Nadine Greco, MS (right) and Cyndi McCawley, RN (left) posed with patient Robert Uriah of Greentown who showed up for his therapy wearing the color of the day. Coronary heart disease is America’s number-one killer, according to the AHA. How to fight it? Greco offers one basic tip: exercise! “An active lifestyle can help prevent serious cardiovascular problems down the road,” she says, “and improve the quality of your life right now!” Greco, who manages the Cardiac Rehab unit at WMH, will speak to seniors about heart health at Area Agencies on Aging centers in Honesdale on February 8th and Hawley on February 9th.
