NEWBORN BABIES AT CENTRA TO CELEBRATE AMERICAN HEART MONTH WITH SPECIAL HANDMADE RED HATS

Hats knitted and crocheted by volunteers for the American Heart Association as part of the Little Hats, Big HeartsTM program.

Volunteers for the American Heart Association are celebrating American Heart Month by knitting  and crocheting red hats for all newborns at Centra on February 3, 2017, National Wear Red Day.  Centra is proud to be participating in the Association’s Little Hats, Big Hearts program, which raises awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country.

The Little Hats, Big Hearts program provides hats to newborn babies in 460 hospitals across 40 states. For more information on the program, visit the American Heart Association’s website

American Heart Month is an annual celebration in February that began in 1963 to encourage Americans to join the battle against heart disease. A presidential proclamation pays tribute each year to researchers, physicians, public health professionals and volunteers for their tireless efforts in preventing, treating and researching heart disease.
