Go Red for Women 'Day of Health and Beauty' set for this Saturday

Heart health will be the focus of the Go Red for Women “New Year, New You” day at Macy’s at Harrisburg Mall. It will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26. The special day of health screenings, beauty treatments and other activities is a partnership between the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, Macy’s and Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute.

Macy’s at the Harrisburg Mall will host the event in its beauty department. Guests will have the opportunity to pamper themselves with spa treatments, massage, makeovers, beauty consultations and other services. The entire store will be dedicated to spreading the message of wellness to all staff and customers. Red merchandise will be featured throughout the store to encourage participation in National Wear Red Day on Feb. 1.

Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute will provide free health screenings, CPR and AED demonstrations, and other services. The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association will provide heart health information -- especially for women -- as part of the Go Red for Women campaign. Women will have the opportunity to take the Go Red for Women declaration to make heart health a priority in the new year.
