    Wear Red & Raise Your Voice on National Wear Red Day® – Friday, February 3, 2017

    Why go Red?
    Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. That’s why this year we are asking that you wear red on National Wear Red Day® Friday, February 3, 2017, encourage others to do the same and make the time to Know Your Numbers. Five numbers, that all women should know to take control of their heart health are: Total Cholesterol, HDL (good) Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI). Knowing these numbers can help women and their healthcare provider determine their risk for developing cardiovascular diseases.

    Wear red.

    The first Friday of February has been designated by the awareness campaign, Heart Truth, as National Wear Red Day® in the United States. On this day, men and women are encouraged to wear red as a symbol of their support of women's heart health.
