Did you know that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women? Many people believe that heart disease affects more men than women, but almost half a million women die each year from the disease. On February 8th, 2018 you can help raise awareness by participating in National Wear Red Day.
In 2003, the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute started National Wear Red Day to draw attention to heart disease and women’s health. Now in its fifteenth year, National Wear Red Day and the attention created by the campaign have resulted in significant improvements in women’s heart health.
All of us at Woodholme Cardiovascular Associates encourage you to support these efforts and wear red on February 8th, 2018! You can help even more by participating in the American Heart Association® and Go Red For Women®FUNraise For National Wear Red Day® fund raising event.
