FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL HEART HEALTH MONTH

 

February Is National Heart Health Month

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), while heart disease and stroke kill one in every 3.7 men, one in 2.4 women lose their lives to heart disease and stroke – the no. 1 and no. 3 killers of women. By way of comparison, breast cancer kills one in 29 women.

Public Awareness: The Red Dress Symbol



The Heart Truth first introduced the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness at Fashion Week in 2003. Since its introduction, women around the country have rallied around the Red Dress and are celebrating the cause and taking ownership of the symbol.



The first Friday of February has been designated a day to take women’s health to heart by wearing red to show support for women’s heart disease awareness.

Join men and women across the country on Friday, February 5, 2010, National Wear Red Day, by showing off a favorite red dress, shirt, or tie, or by wearing the Red Dress Pin.
