Wear Red for Women's Day

LANSING, MICHIGAN - The American Heart Association is raising awareness for cardiac health. Today, Friday, February 5th, is National Wear Red Day. The association is hoping for men and women to “Wear Red and Give,” with one goal in mind: to eliminate heart disease and strokes. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.

Mitch Elkind, president of the American Heart Association, spoke to Channel 4 in Detroit information about which age and race are affected more by heart disease.

“We’re now seeing cardiovascular disease affecting younger women, and women from Black and Hispanic communities are disproportionately impacted by heart disease and stroke,” said Elkind.

Today, wear red and become educated on the symptoms and stroke warning signs. Visit https://www.goredforwomen.org/en/about-heart-disease-in-women/facts/heart-disease-in-hispanic-women to find resources, and become informed on how to prevent Heart Disease.
