Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined.
Wear Red. Raise Your Voice.
Go Red on National Wear Red Day®
Friday - Feb. 7, 2014
A Decade of Success
- 34% fewer women now die from heart disease, saving 330 lives every day.
- More women are taking ownership of their health by developing healthy lifestyles.
- Awareness among minorities is up, doubling among Hispanic women and tripling among African American women.
- Gender-specific medical research is up. The FDA now requires clinical trial results be reported by gender. Gender-specific inequalities have been identified, ensuring women receive the same level of heart treatment as men.
Yet, with all these successes, heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, killing almost 1,100 a day. But what’s more powerful than the killer? Millions of mothers, sisters, daughters and friends speaking up.
Even better, I would love for you to get your school, workplace, church, or community group involved. To become a coordinator for a Wear Red Day event in St. Louis, please use this link:
