Wear Red for Women Tomorrow and Watch This Video!

Go Red For Women "celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke." The American Heart Association (AHA) campaign started in 2004 as a way to dispel the myth that cardiovascular disease is "an older man's disease." In fact, heart disease is the number one cause of death in American women. Go Red for Women, symbolized by a red dress, encourages women to take charge of their heart health.

Tomorrow, Friday, February 3rd, is National Wear Red Day. Support women and the cause by sporting some red! To learn more about cardiovascular disease, other ways to support the Go Red for Women campaign, and the signs of a heart attack, visit and watch this really cute and informative video featuring actress, Elizabeth Banks. When you link to the website, click on the third video called, "Just a Little Heart Attack."

If heart health is on your mind, schedule an appointment with me (use the Contact tab at the top of the page). You might also like my post that's scheduled for this Saturday, so keep an eye out! It's never too early to get help with the best strategy of all--prevention.

Have you had a heart attack? Do you have any comments or advice for other women? Or share pictures of yourself wearing red!
