WE’RE PROUD TO GO RED: Employees and members of the Medical Staff pose with Mary Ellen Clyne,
Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer at Clara Maass Medical Center¸
an RWJBarnabas Health facility in Belleville, NJ. In support of the American
Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, the exterior lights
that shine on the Continuing Care Building at Clara Maass Medical Center
are also red.
Employees, medical staff and volunteers at Clara Maass Medical Center,
an RWJBarnabas Health facility, recently celebrated American Heart Month
by wearing red in support of the American Heart Association’s (AHA)
Go Red for Women campaign.
Each year, Clara Maass Medical Center participates in the annual observance
to remind patients and each other that our hearts don’t just beat
for one person – they beat for our spouses, children and grandchildren,
siblings, friends, colleagues and loved ones.
The American Heart Association established the annual American Heart Month
observance, which takes place in February, to urge people to get their
hearts checked regularly. According to the American Heart Association,
the GO Red for Women campaign aims to increase awareness of heart disease
and stroke in women, as they cause one in three deaths among women each
year – more than all cancers combined.
