NBC 5 and the American Heart Association invite you to WEAR RED on Friday, February 5, for National Wear Red Day. Join us and show your support in the fight to end heart disease and stroke.
Cardiovascular disease and stroke claim the lives of 1 in 3 women every 80 seconds. Although Covid-19 numbers are on the rise, heart disease still remains the #1 cause of death in the U.S and worldwide and the #1 killer of women.
Cardiovascular disease is not just an issue for older women. It can affect women of all ages. Nearly 45% of women age 20 and older are living with some form of heart disease. New research reveals that Gen Z and Millennial women are less likely to be aware that heart disease is their greatest health threat.
Coast to coast, landmarks, news anchors and neighborhoods will go red!
