February 1 is National Wear Red Day
Heart disease is the number one killer of American women (and men), but
it's a disease that in most cases can be prevented. Help the Schliemann
Center for Women’s Health Education (SCWHE) kick off American Heart
Month and “go red” on Friday, February 1! It's National
Wear Red Day®, celebrated on the first Friday of February each year.
Through local community events and awareness activities, thousands across
the country wear red to unite in the national movement to give women a
personal and urgent wake-up call about their risk for heart disease.
National Wear Red Day serves as a reminder to every woman to care for her
heart! On this day, men and women can participate by wearing a red dress,
shirt or tie. The Schliemann Center is encouraging our community to wear
red, take a photo, and share it with BRMC on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram
using the hashtags #GoRed and #TeamBRMC.
