KGH Promotes Heart Health on "Go Red for Women" Day

Posted:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Workers from Kennewick General Hospital were flagging down drivers early Friday morning to give them a rose, an apple, and some information on heart disease in women.

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in women and many don't know the warning signs. They include: fatigue, pain down the arm, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and naussea.

One of the workers helping out was a nurse from KGH, who had a heart attack when she was only 48 years old.

"It was very sudden", said Debbie Logan. "I had no risk factors, no high blood pressure, no high cholesterol, no family history. So it was a shock to me and my family and thankfully I'm doing well".
