Details: While thousands of women across the New York area will be wearing red on Friday, February 6, as part of the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" awareness campaign, the staff at one area hospital is going red BIG TIME.

At New York Hospital Queens, 16,000 square feet of red ribbon is wrapped up and around the seven-story wing that's under construction. The "Go Red" symbol can be seen across Flushing from streets, expressways and by passenger planes flying into LaGuardia and JFK airports. In 2010, the new building will house the Heart and Vascular Center.

Visuals:

  • Huge building wrapped in red ribbon
  • Dozens of hospital staff wearing red for a "Go Red" photo near ribbon (weather permitting)

When: Friday, February 6, 2009 at Noon

Where: New York Hospital Queens, 56-45 Main Street, Flushing, NY (meet in main lobby)

Interviews: Speak with New York Hospital Queens cardiologists about the special risks women face from heart disease, the No.1 killer of women.

Background: February is Healthy Heart Month across the U.S., and the event should be especially significant in Queens, where heart disease is the number one killer and death rates from heart disease are higher than the national average.

To help Queens residents learn more about their own risk factors, how to prevent heart attacks and treat heart disease, the Heart and Vascular Center of New York Hospital Queens is sponsoring a month-long series of free, public presentations, screenings, demonstrations and symposiums at the hospital and locations throughout Queens.
