"Look for information about your heart health at the American Heart Association's website www.goredforwomen.org".
During February, the American Heart Association and Go Red For Women target women to help raise their awareness in the fight against heart disease and learning to "love your heart" to live a longer, healthier life. Attendees, along with Tulane students, faculty and staff are all encouraged to wear red in support of the National Wear Red Day. "That's especially true in IN, where adult men have more than double the risk of heart attack and coronary heart disease as women". It is a nationwide campaign that aims at inspiring women to take action for better heart health. The American Heart Association is spreading the word by encouraging everyone to wear red on Friday, Feb. 3 for National Wear Red Day. Select a favorite outfit in red and register by February 9 to attend the Go Red for Women event. "We look forward to saving and changing countless lives by working together".
"This is such a simple way to raise awareness and celebrate heart health".

Approximately 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year-that's 1 in every 4 deaths. Preventing heart disease requires discussion every day, not just during women's heart month, and women shouldn't wait until they begin having chest pains to educate themselves, she said.
With over one in three women living with a form of cardiovascular disease, according to the AHA, almost half of those who are age 20 or over are black. Taking preventive steps can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease.
"We'd love to see the whole community Go Red for Women this year".
