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

WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) – If you noticed more people than usual wearing red today, it’s all for a good purpose.  It’s ‘National Wear Red Day’ for the American Heart Association’s ‘Go Red for Women’ initiative, raising awareness about heart disease and strokes in women.

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the #1 killer of women.  Heart disease and stroke cause one in three deaths in women every year.  Given this statistic, the AHA is asking women to take the #1in3 pledge this year.  80-percent of cardiac events can be prevented through education and lifestyle changes.
