Go Red!
James Beckerman, MD, FACC posted:
Just wanted to wish everyone a happy, healthy Heart Month this February and remind ourselves that heart disease is the number one killer of both women and men. However, only 1 in 6 women recognizes this risk, despite the fact that 1 in 3 women will die of heart disease as compared to 1 in 31 dying of breast cancer each year. Recognition can result in risk reduction, as 90% of women have at least one modifiable risk for heart disease, like tobacco use, high blood pressure, diabetes, or abnormal cholesterol. Join me in raising awareness about the Go Red for Women movement, and ask your local American Heart Association chapter for a red dress pin to show your support!
