National Wear Red Day® is Friday, February 5, 2016
Friday, February 5, 2016, is National Wear Red Day—a day when Americans nationwide will take women’s health to heart by wearing red. Join the movement on February 5
and encourage women to take steps to reduce their risk for heart disease, their #1 killer. The Heart Truth®
(www.hearttruth.gov), sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, is a
national education program for women that raises awareness about heart disease and motivates them to take action to prevent the disease.
The centerpiece of The Heart Truth is the Red Dress®—the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness. It delivers a powerful red alert to women to take their risk for heart disease seriously and personally.
