The American Heart Association wants February to be known for more than cards and candy. Employees at Pantex and Y-12 National Security Complex celebrated National Wear Red Day on Thursday, Feb. 6, by wearing red and participating in wellness activities such as blood pressure checks and CPR demonstrations. This was in support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red campaign that shows support for and awareness of heart disease in women.

Y‑12’s Occupational Health Services staff encourages employees to be heart healthy.

Information was available to employees regarding heart health.
