Bunker Hill Community College Celebrates 'Wear Red Day'
Date:2/12/2009

BOSTON, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bunker Hill Community College is striking back - preemptively - against women's cardiovascular disease. BHCC held a series of events on National Wear Red Day - Friday, February 6th - to raise awareness that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women. Stickers with the red-dress motif - national symbol of this health campaign - were handed out to the entire College community, many of whom also sported red shirts, ties, jackets, and blouses as a sign of solidarity in the fight for women's heart health.

BHCC organized a series of events throughout the day, including: free blood pressure screening offered by nursing faculty; distributing informational materials on the steps women can take to promote heart health; and organizing a display of facts and images on female cardiovascular disease in the College's Main Lobby. Throughout the day, several hundred people filtered into the display areas to learn more about the heart health campaign.

Women over 65 are at particularly high risk of a heart attack, which prompted BHCC to reach out to the seniors' community of Greater Boston. A group of senior women from Jamaica Plains were invited to a sit-down lunch in the College's art gallery, and treated to a variety of hands-on artistic activities with a heart motif. The seniors crafted valentine cards and designed artwork for a poster on National Heart Day that will remain on display throughout the month of February.

Bunker Hill Community College is the largest community college in Massachusetts. The College enrolls more than 9,500 students on two campuses and at five satellite locations each semester. Some 2,000 students take classes online. BHCC is one of the most diverse institutions of higher education in the Commonwealth. Six in ten students are people of color and more than half of BHCC's students are women. The College als
