Are You Wearing Red for National Wear Red Day?

By Joanne Troppello

February is American Heart Month, which is a federally designated time to reflect on heart healthy living and how to encourage Americans to get family and friends involvement in the movement for a healthier lifestyle. The first American Heart Month occurred during February of 1964 when Lyndon B. Johnson was President. According to statistics reported by the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease is the cause of more than 17.9 million deaths annually. That number is estimated to rise to more than 23.6 million by the year 2030.

Today, February 2nd is National Wear Red Day in honor of supporting the “Go Red for Women” movement to encourage awareness of heart healthy living.

Did you know that every 80 seconds one woman in the US is killed due to cardiovascular disease? That's a scary statistic that should hit home for all of us.

You can donate to the “Go Red for Women” movement and help others by making them aware of the importance of this day and the American Heart Month.

The GO RED movement stands for the following:

Get Your Numbers

It is important to get regular checkups with your medical provider to ascertain your blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
