Heart Day

No, not that heart day.

Today is National Wear Red Day. It's a day to recognize the leading killer of American women: heart disease. It's not breast cancer, or ovarian cancer. It's heart disease. Many women don't know that they're at risk. And those who do know, may not realize they're having a heart attack because the symptoms are different than those felt by men, and traditionally recognized as the classics.

What are you doing to take care of your heart?

1. Stop smoking.

2. Exercise.

3. Eat healthy, low fat meals.

4. Check your blood pressure.

5. Check your blood sugars.

6. Reduce your stress.

Make a pledge to learn more about heart disease and how it manifests in women. For yourself, or for the women you love.
