Friday, February 6, 2009 will be National Wear Red Day. Many will support women’s heart health by wearing red dresses, shirts, ties, or pins. To learn more about women’s heart health week, visit The Heart Truth from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. The National Wear Red Day observance promotes the Red Dress symbol and provides an opportunity for everyone to unite in this life-saving awareness movement.
For more information on how to get involved, visit the National Wear Red Day toolkit which provides useful information and resources that you can use to help celebrate National Wear Red Day in your community. http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/hearttruth/material/toolkit.htm
