February is National Heart Health Month. Show your support for the fight against heart disease in women and help raise awareness with the American Heart Association by wearing red on the annual Go Red For Women® day on Feb. 4, 2011. Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of one in three American women each year — one per minute.
Go Red for Women is asking to make it your mission to help save lives. Take time to “Tell 5” — tell five women you want them to live on GoRedForWomen.org.
In conjunction with National Heart Health Month, UPMC will be conducting cardiovascular screenings at area locations. Watch Extra for more details.
