Huntington Hospital newborns "go red" for heart month

February 23, 2017

February is nationally recognized as heart month. For that reason, Huntington Hospital has collaborated with the American Heart Association to provide every baby born at the hospital with a red onesie as a symbol of heart health and encouragement for a healthy future. Heart disease is the number one killer of women, more than all forms of cancer combined. That means many of the women in these babies’ lives – their moms, sisters, grandmas or aunts – could be affected by heart disease.

Nikhil Daga, MD, board-certified interventional cardiologist, Huntington Hospital in Pasadena, California, is pictured with newborn Olivia, highlighting the importance of heart health, even at the first moments of life.
