National Wear Red Day 2023
The first Friday of February has been designated by the awareness campaign, Heart Truth, as National Wear Red Day®. 655,000 Americans die annually from heart diseases, on this day, men and women are encouraged to wear red as a symbol of their support of women’s heart health. About 1 in 3 deaths among women each year are due to cardiovascular diseases. But do not let that scare you- about 87% of all cardiovascular diseases are preventable, which makes awareness, education, and research imperative to the cause supported by the holiday. Your best friends for prevention are better lifestyles, diets, and exercises.
