Go Red for Women’s Heart Health!!!
Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of women causing 1 in 3 deaths each year? And, did you know that cardiovascular disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined and yet only 44% of women recognize that cardiovascular disease is their greatest health threat?
So today, on National Wear Red Day, join me as we unite for the “Go Red for Women” initiative to raise awareness for women’s heart health!
