Go Red For Women

On Friday, February 1, join millions of women (and men) around the country who will dress in red to celebrate Go Red For Women and the American Heart Association’s 10th annual National Wear Red Day.

We wear red to call attention to the fact that heart disease is still the #1 killer of women in the US, killing another American woman every single minute.

We wear red to remind ourselves that we have the power to change those statistics and beat heart disease! 

We wear red to underscore that cardiac events in women are preventable 80% of the time! We can dramatically improve our heart health by incorporating the American Heart Association’s Life’s Simple Seven™ into our daily routines:

  1. Get Active
  2. Eat Better
  3. Lose Weight
  4. Stop Smoking
  5. Control Cholesterol
  6. Manage Blood Pressure
  7. Reduce Blood Sugar


OK, so I didn’t write the above.  I “copy and pasted” it into my blog post.

Tomorrow, I personally will, in addition to wearing a red shirt to work, be speaking at a Go Red For Women Luncheon.

Maybe I’ll post my speech tomorrow night.

In the mean time, take very good care of yourself, whether or not you wear red tomorrow!!!

    I am wearing red today! Yes….you should post your speech. And good for you for being able to get up and talk. Public speaking was never one of my attributes.
