This February, we are highlighting Go Red for Women and National Wear Red Day. Tomorrow, February 2nd, women across the country will dress in red to spread awareness for Cardiovascular Disease. This up and coming day is presented by the American Heart Association, and is dedicated to making women aware of the risks of heart disease and the ways it can be prevented. Why is this important to you?

So, what can we do? Learn more
