According to the American Heart Association, every 40 seconds a loved one has a heart attack or stroke. Together, we can protect the hearts we love by wearing red to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease.
On Friday, February 2, 2024, employees at Doherty and its sister company, Dahl Consulting (DAHL), were invited to participate in Wear Red Day. This national initiative through the American Heart Association was created to raise awareness for and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
For each Doherty and DAHL employee who participated in Wear Red Day, our company pledged a donation to the American Heart Association. Our company donation will be used by the American Heart Association for lifesaving work to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
In addition to wearing red, employees were encouraged to raise awareness for and reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease through the following ways:
- Become CPR Certified! Find a CPR training course near you by visiting this CPR course locator.
- Get Educated! Review and become familiar with the signs/symptoms of heart attack and strokes.
- Find Ways to Give! Make a personal donation in honor of a loved one.
