MHP to Celebrate Wear Red Day®

Mahaska Health Partnership to Celebrate National Wear Red Day®

February 1 is National Wear Red Day® when the American Heart Association encourages everyone to wear red to bring awareness to cardiovascular disease and its effect on women.

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. The goal of National Wear Red Day® is to challenge women to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their likelihood of developing the deadly disease.

“One of the main challenges this movement faces is convincing women that heart disease is actually a serious risk for them,” said MHP Cardiac Rehab Nurse Renee Edgar, RN. “Too many women are convinced that cardiovascular disease isn’t relevant to them because of their gender, age and lifestyle.”

Even with the increased efforts of the AHA, heart disease still kills more women than all cancers combined. This year, the AHA is celebrating ten years of going red for women and MHP encourages you to participate in the movement by learning your risk for heart disease and making healthy choices to reduce it.

“If you take the proper precautions ahead of time, you could save yourself from developing cardiovascular disease,” said Edgar. “Don’t wait for a heart attack or stroke to start eating healthy, exercising and giving up smoking.”

Encourage a woman in your life to get to know her risk for cardiovascular disease and wear red on February 1. Knowledge is power in fighting this deadly disease.
