Whether it's lipstick, dresses, shoes or accessories, don your brightest red on National Wear Red Day, February 3. While the day gave us the opportunity to wear more of this stunning color, its main focus was on cardiovascular risk and disease.
National Wear Red Day is celebrated alongside National Health Month with the support of the American Heart Association. In particular, it focuses on raising women's awareness of heart disease and stroke risks. Cardiovascular disease kills one in three women each year, making it the number one cause of health-related death in women. The good news is that 87% of heart problems are considered preventable, making awareness, education, research and resources vital to the causes supported this holiday season.
