Today, Friday, Feb. 5, is the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day, which is meant to increase awareness that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, even though it is 80 percent preventable. According to Mayo Clinic, many forms of heart disease can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices. In addition, knowing heart disease symptoms and when to seek emergency medical care can save lives, which is something everyone can advocate. ‪#‎GoRed‬
