Today is Go Red for Women Day, encouraging people to wear red as a symbol of the fight to wipe out heart disease and stroke. Their goal is a 25% reduction in coronary heart disease and stroke risk by the year 2010. Are you showing your support?
Heart disease and stroke are often preventable, and that is why I like the American Heart Association's "Go Red" campaign. It offers behavior changes (exercise and diet) that people can adopt immediately--and that is key to encouraging people to take care of their health.
