TriStar NorthCrest Medical Center Co-Hosts Luncheon to Promote Heart Health

The month of February marks National Heart Month, first established in 1964 by President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Additionally, it has been an American tradition since 2003 to wear red on the first Friday of February, known as National Wear Red Day, across the country.

TriStar Northcrest Medical Center, along with the Tennessee Department of Health and Farm Bureau Insurance, is celebrating National Wear Red Day by hosting their second annual Red Dress Luncheon on Friday, February 2, 2024, at Highland Crest Community College in Springfield, TN.

The event will take place from 12 to 1:30 pm and provide free lunch, prizes, and information about heart health. Unlike the name suggests, it is not required to wear a red dress to the event, but many people choose to wear the color in support.

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Rick F. Koch, a cardiologist with Tennessee Heart and Vascular, who specializes in cardiac disease. Dr. Koch has prepared an informative and interesting presentation discussing women's cardiac health, healthy diets, testing options, and overall women's heart care that will be sure to inspire. 

TriStar NorthCrest wanted to co-host the event because they believe in the importance of promoting heart health, especially in women, as cardiovascular disease is known to be the leading cause of death for women in the United States.

“This luncheon celebrates all those who have been lost, survivors, and their families,” says Paula Gomez, Executive Assistant to the CEO, CFO, and VP of Operations, who has helped coordinate this year’s Red Dress Luncheon.

Anyone is invited to attend the event and can RSVP at no cost online here.
