February 1st is National Wear Red Day

The Heart Truth is that one in four American women dies of heart disease, and most fail to make the connection between risk factors—such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol—and their personal risk of developing heart disease.

Challenges remain, and many women still do not take heart disease seriously and personally.

Learn more about The Heart Truth and what you can do—like participating in National Wear Red Day on February 1, 2008—to help those around you to take action to prevent and control their risk factors.

National Wear Red Day—February 1, 2008— is a day when Americans nationwide will wear red to show their support for women's heart disease awareness. This observance promotes the Red Dress symbol and provides an opportunity for everyone to unite in this life-saving awareness movement by showing off a favorite red dress, shirt, or tie, or Red Dress Pin.
This toolkit provides useful information and resources that you can use to help celebrate National Wear Red Day in your community.
