National Wear Red Day® is more than just a day to wear red. It is an opportunity for people to raise awareness of heart disease and for women to know their cardiovascular risk so they can take action to live longer.
Heart disease is the number one killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.*
The American Heart Association has designated February as American Heart Month in honor of women’s health and saving lives. With education and lifestyle changes, 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented.* This month is an opportunity for communities to unite to prevent heart disease and stroke.
Visit the American Heart Association for more information on Go Red and details on how you can show support for women’s health.
