National Wear Red Day: Raising Awareness About Heart Disease And Strokes In Women

The University of Central Florida community united Friday in support of the American Heart Association and the fight against cardiovascular disease.

Students, faculty and staff raised awareness of heart disease by sporting red in celebration of Go Red for Women/National Wear Red Day. The disease is the No. 1 killer of women in America, more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.

“As a three time survivor, there is a need to raise awareness about heart disease in women and the importance of heart health,” said Fran Ragsdale from the UCF Center for Success of Women Faculty.
