Washington (dbTechno) - When you go to get dressed today, help promote heart disease awareness and overall heart health by wearing something red.
February 6, 2009 marks a big day for the American Heart Association.
This day is known as National Wear Red Day, and is an event that is celebrated all across the U.S.
This is the fifth year for this National Wear Red Day to take place, and it continues to pick up steam each year it ages.
This year more than ever it is key to help promote heart health as heart disease is the leading cause of death in women.
According to the American Heart Association, 1 out of every 3 women die from heart disease each year.
This is why it is very important to raise awareness for women in terms of knowing the risks of heart disease, and how important it is to have a healthy heart.
So what can you do in terms of wearing red today? Whatever you do, don’t be afraid to be creative and help promote heart health!
