The Heart Truth campaign in helping spread the word that heart disease is the #1 killer of American women. Please tell others about the fifth annual National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 1, 2008. This observance provides an opportunity for everyone to unite nationwide in a life-saving movement to urge women to find out their risk for heart disease and take action to lower it by showing off a favorite red dress, shirt, or tie, and the Red Dress Pin—the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness.
The Heart Truth is a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
