Today is a special day in the campaign against heart disease in women.  The nationally recognized red dress symbol has been marching through advertisements for several years now.  The “Go Red” campaign asks everyone to wear red on the first Friday of February so people will start talking about this lesser-known problem for women.

People who wear red today know that heart disease is the number one killer of women.  They might even personally know a woman who has heart disease.  Survivors and loved ones can only do so much in spreading the word about heart attack risk.  Hopefully National Wear Red Day and the Go Red campaign will get everyone talking about their heart!
