RMV Goes Red for Women's Heart Health
(Boston, MA) Registrar Rachel Kaprielian today joined hundreds of RMV employees to drive home an important message that what you wear for one day can make the difference between life and death. At more than 18 RMV branches across the state, workers donned red clothing in support of the American Heart Association's national "Wear Red for Women Day."
"This campaign really hits home for the RMV because nearly 80 percent of our employees are women," said Registrar Kaprielian. "Heart disease and stroke kill over half a million women a year so we want to help the Association get women thinking about heart healthy routines."
Branches in Framingham, Beverly, Revere, Watertown, Southbridge, Milford, Fall River, Wilmington, Brockton, Lowell, Worcester, Springfield, Eastfield Mall, Chicopee, Greenfield, Hadley, Easthampton and Leominster pledged 100% participation in the campaign to raise awareness of the fight against heart disease, the leading killer of women.
