NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY

FIGHT HEART DISEASE AND STROKE
"GO RED" on
NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY

February 6, 2015

Heart disease is the number 1 killer for all Americans, and stroke is the fourth-leading cause of death. As frightening as those statistics, the risks of getting those diseases are even higher for African-Americans. The good news is that we can improve our odds of preventing and beating these diseases by understanding our risks and taking simple steps to address them. 

Here are three things that you can do NOW to help lower your risk of heart disease and stoke:

  1. Know Your Heart Score
    Do you think that eating right and getting enough exercise?  It only takes 5 minutes to complete the My Life Check quiz and find out where you stand. You can also take the Go Red Heart CheckUp to get more tailored advice and information to improve your heart health.

  2. Live Healthy
    Exercise and a nutritious and well-balanced diet are critical steps towards preventing heart disease and stroke.  Try some of the tasty, heart-healthy recipes available—your body will thank you!

  3. Know the Signs
    Women often do not realize that they are experiencing a heart attack or stroke until its too late.  Learn more about the symptoms of a heart attack and stroke on Go Red.

Join me in wearing RED on Friday, February 6 to raise awareness about the threat that heart disease and stroke pose to women especially Black women.  More importantly, commit to a healthy lifestyle that includes a heart-friendly diet, regular exercise and routine, well woman visits to the doctor—and make sure at least one sister does the same!  We have the POWER to defeat heart disease and stroke!
