National Wear Red Day 2017

National Wear Red Day 2017
Friday, Feb. 3, 2017, is National Wear Red Day. What does it mean to wear red on this day? The American Heart Association says that 1 in 3 women die each year from heart disease and stroke. Setting aside one day to wear red--the color of our hearts--is a reminder that heart disease is the #1 killer of women, but lifestyle changes can reduce risk.

Take a selfie with yourself and some friends all in red, then post it on Twitter with #GoRedWearRed to spread the word about heart disease. Learn more at www.goredforwomen.org.
