HEALTH CARE PROVIDER: American Heart Association

Woman in Her 40s Checking Her Smart Watch Mayor Bill Ketron Proclaims February 7th as "Wear Red Day" in Rutherford County

The American Heart Association, together with its signature movement, Go Red for Women, encourages everyone to "wear red and give" on National Wear Red Day to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease: women's greatest health threat.

The Go Red for Women luncheon is on Wednesday, February 12 at the DECC. Evidence shows that childhood risk factors play a significant role in the development of heart disease in adults, and that is why is so important to be aware of the "trickle up" effects of unhealthy eating habits, sugar overconsumption and lack of exercise into adulthood. Thomas, a San Marco resident, was the first woman to head Baptist Medical Center South, the second-largest hospital in the Baptist Health system.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in men and women in the US including Indiana.

The American Heart Association is committed to fighting heart disease.

"We hope the community will participate by wearing red Friday", said Mayor Ketron.

His company remains in the spotlight over ongoing controversies like Facebook's refusal to fact-check political ads. Facebook is under fire again, accused of sharing private messages and other user information with other companies.

"Heart disease is prevalent in my family". My grandmother has survived both stroke and heart attack, my mother suffers from high blood pressure, and my sisters and I have decided we want to do what it takes to live long healthy lives.

Harms says there are simple steps we can take to prevent our risks.

Cardiovascular Disease is the number one killer of women, causing one in three deaths each year.

Social media campaigns include #29DaysofHeart focused on raising awareness about the risk and prevalence of heart disease in African-American women as part of both Black History Month and Heart Month.
