Ladies, get your best red outfits ready to wear this Friday, February 1 in support of National Wear Red Day. The American Heart Association's annual call to wear red is a simple way for women to draw attention to the nation's number one killer--heart disease.

Most people are unaware that one out of three women will die from this condition, resulting in 460,000 deaths a year. Unfortunately, it can also affect woman of all ages. The good news is that heart disease is preventable with a heart-healthy diet and exercise.

Organizations and businesses can make the event a group effort as well. To find out more about National Wear Red Day or to get an assessment of your heart condition, go to: GoRedForWomen.org.
