February 1 is National Wear Red Day

Heart disease is the number one killer of American women (and men), but it's a disease that in most cases can be prevented. Help the Schliemann Center for Women’s Health Education (SCWHE) kick off American Heart Month and “go red” on Friday, February 1! It's National Wear Red Day®, celebrated on the first Friday of February each year. Through local community events and awareness activities, thousands across the country wear red to unite in the national movement to give women a personal and urgent wake-up call about their risk for heart disease.

National Wear Red Day serves as a reminder to every woman to care for her heart! On this day, men and women can participate by wearing a red dress, shirt or tie. The Schliemann Center is encouraging our community to wear red, take a photo, and share it with BRMC on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #GoRed and #TeamBRMC.
