On Friday, Feb. 4, Wheatfield health care company Health System Services will be participating in National Wear Red Day to support the American Heart Association.

Employees at Health System Services will help to raise funds for heart disease research, promote awareness of heart disease among women and share educational information with customers.

In return, employees will be presented with a "Go Red" lapel pin and allowed to "dress down" that day, with one condition: some portion of that day's attire must be red.

"Most people are surprised to learn that heart disease is still the No. 1 cause of death among women. National Wear Red Day provides a creative way for us to give back and, at the same time, help promote awareness of heart disease in women," explained Health System Services' Senior Vice President Jeffrey Rose. "Our entire team is already looking forward to Feb. 4."

Health System Services is located at 6867 Williams Road, Wheatfield.
