Description

Red Dress Sunday began in February 2005 with the participation of three local churches. It has grown to include more than 180 places of worship in Maryland as well as Florida, Georgia, and Delaware. Red Dress Sunday was a collaborative effort between local African-American and Latina churches and Saint Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. It is our goal to establish the first event in the State of South Carolina right here in Charleston, SC

Key Message:

Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death among women, yet most women don’t recognize this threat. The Medi Community Resource Center is committed to raising awareness and making a difference. The goal of this inaugural event is to ensure we are all aware of heart disease — how to recognize symptoms, how to treat it and most importantly, how to prevent it in the first place.

Red Dress Sunday:

The goal of The Medi Community Resource Center is to educate women about the risk factors of heart disease — that is, the behaviors or conditions that increase their chance of getting heart disease. Red Dress Sunday is on the second Sunday in February. Women (and men) participating in Red Dress Sunday wear red to Sunday services to bring attention to this devastating disease. On Red Dress Sunday, the congregation is educated about the risk factors of heart disease and receives health information materials on maintaining a heart healthy lifestyle.

We invite all Churches across the Tri-county area, and other healthcare focused agencies, and community leaders to be a part of this important initiative. Register your Health Ministry at your church and/or make your individual commitment to your support and host a Red Dress Sunday Event.
