Wear Red Day
Red is my favorite color. So I'll be on board, and I hope you will, too, for the Go Red for Women activiites planned as part of National Heart Month. Friday, Feb. 6, is National Wear Red Day. So be sure to pull your favorite red sweater, scarf or tie out of the closet to complement your ensemble. Sunday, Feb. 8, is Power Sunday, an American Heart Association event encouraging faith groups to provide heart health education and resources to members. AHA supporters will be kicking off the month Thursday with a special luncheon at Jackie Cooper Mercedes. I'll report back what we learned. This we know, coronary heart disease is the number one killer of women. That's the bad news. The good news — AHA, healthcare providers and others are doing all they can to reduce those numbers.
