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.
