Valley Pharmacy celebrates Go Red for Women Day

GOWANDA — Today is “GO RED FOR WOMEN” Day at Valley Pharmacy & Medical Supplies, 31 W. Main Street, Gowanda.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, the Valley Pharmacy & Medical Supplies is proudly participating in American Health Month. You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease.

Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease.

To lower your risk:

¯ Watch your weight

¯ Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke

¯ Control your cholesterol and blood pressure

¯ If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation

¯ Get active and eat healthy

Today, in celebration of “GO RED FOR WOMEN,” stop at the Pharmacy for a complimentary “GO RED” pin and a copy of “HEALTHY SNACKS FOR ON-THE-GO” people.
