Friday is Wear Red Day for Heart Disease Awareness

It's an effort to increase women's awareness of their risk of heart disease.

The Titans are supporting Saint Thomas Heart and the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement that helps raise awareness of the threat of heart disease in women.

Go Red for Women has plenty of resources available at GoRedforWomen.org, from recipes to exercise tips. This has quickly become known to our population as a visual reminder of the need for women to be proactive in advocating for their own medical heart health as well as taking care of their hearts themselves.

February is filled with many red hearts, and the American Heart Association wants to make sure they're healthy.

Finally, know your numbers for blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and BMI. As part of its support, CVS Health helps to fund important life-saving cardiovascular research and provides heart healthy screenings across its MinuteClinic network of retail medical clinics. Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association's national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women.

Christiana Care Health System is one of the country's largest healthcare systems, ranking as the 22nd leading hospital in the nation and 11th on the East Coast in terms of admissions.

The foundation said women are more likely than men to die or have a second heart attack within the first six months of a cardiac event and women are less likely to get bypass surgery and stents to restore blood flow. Fortunately, about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases can be prevented through education and lifestyle changes.
