go-red-for-women-logo[1]Friday, Feb. 1,  is National Wear Red Day, a day when the nation bands together to bring awareness to the No. 1 killer of women – heart disease.

If it is statistics you need, nearly 13 Connecticut women die each day from cardiovascular disease and stroke.

So put the black back into the closet, choose something red and wear your heart on your sleeve.

And don’t forget the American Heart Association’s 8th Annual Go Red for Women Luncheon is coming up on Feb. 14 at the Connecticut Convention Center, featuring keynote speaker and heart transplant survivor, Ginger Zimmerman. For information go to www.heart.org

    Typical misandry in our society. Why is this just for women who have heart disease? What about the men of die of it? It is only for straight, white women too? So discriminatory. Try being a little more inclusive.
