Mayo Clinic goes red for heart disease
Employees at Mayo Clinic joined people across the nation in wearing red on Feb. 7, helping to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke as the most dangerous threats to a woman's health. Nationally, 1 in 3 women die from cardiovascular disease.
National Wear Red Day takes place on the first Friday in February, which is National Heart Month. The special day ― and the attention-getting color ― are a call for women to take charge of their cardiovascular health, and encourage their mothers, daughters and friends to do the same.
Here are some images from across Mayo Clinic.
