UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Supports National Wear Red Day
The American Heart Association is encouraging everyone to wear red on National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 2, to raise money and awareness for the fight against heart disease and stroke.
More than 800,000 people in the U.S. die from heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases each year. But 80 percent of cardiovascular disease may be prevented through healthy habits such as eating right, controlling cholesterol, getting physical activity and not smoking.
National Wear Red Day® officially kicks off American Heart Month with events across America to raise money and teach Americans how they can improve their heart health.
National Wear Red Day is supported and celebrated locally by UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's with a mayoral proclamation on Friday, February 2 at 11:30 a.m. The public is encouraged to attend and join in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
