This Friday, February 3rd is National Wear Red Day in support of heart disease awareness.
Why Go Red? About 610,000 Americans die from heart disease each year—that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. 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®.By doing so you help support educational programs to increase awareness, and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health. Don’t forget to make your heart health a priority. Schedule a prevention check-up to review your overall health so your doctor can measure blood pressure, check cholesterol and look for signs of heart disease, stroke and other illnesses.
