In the news: MRP-designated hospital uses comedy, fashion to raise heart health awareness

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, March 9, 2010

Heart disease, stroke, and diabetes have been shown to affect African American and Hispanic populations more frequently and are among the leading causes of death for these populations. In order to help raise awareness of the heightened frequency of these diseases, Stamford (CT) Hospital, an ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® (MRP)-designated organization, will sponsor “Fashion of the Heart,” an evening of comedy and fashion.

Event organizers have also identified individuals who have worked to improve cardiovascular health among minorities in the Stamford area. These individuals will be honored as part of the night’s festivities.

The event will feature comedy skits by local performers demonstrating the dangers of cardiovascular disease in a memorable, educational way.
