Feb 3 is National Wear Red Day – Learn Why

1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke each year. Join the movement to end heart disease and stroke in women. Support Go Red For Women by participating in National Wear Red Day® on Friday, February 3, 2017. Here’s what it means to Go Red:

G: GET YOUR NUMBERS

Ask your doctor to check your blood pressure and cholesterol.

O: OWN YOUR LIFESTYLE

Stop smoking, lose weight, exercise, and eat healthy. It’s up to you. No one can do it for you.

R: REALIZE YOUR RISK

We think it won’t happen to us, but heart disease kills one of three women.

E: EDUCATE YOUR FAMILY

Make healthy food choices for you and your family. Teach your kids the importance of staying active.

D: DON’T BE SILENT

Tell every woman you know that heart disease is our No. 1 killer.
