    National 'Wear Red Day' is Feb. 7

    February 5, 2020

    According to the American Heart Association, National “Wear Red Day" is Feb. 7, 2020. Consider getting involved: Wear Red on Friday, Feb. 7, and take a picture and send it to the CHEW page (chew@scranton.edu) to be entered for a raffle. Feel free to pick up a RED Dress Pin in the CHEW office (TDC-205K) to support the movement preventing Heart Disease with education and lifestyle change.

    Go Red for Women isn't just about wearing red for one day in February, this initiative is a comprehensive platform designed to increase women?s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally.

    Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. Symptoms of heart attack and stroke present differently in women, so don?t ignore the signals that your body may be sending to alert you.
