Are you wearing red Feb 1st? You should and here’s the reason why…

Heart

 

February 1st, 2013, is the kick off date for Go Red for Women Day and what better way to bring awareness to National Heart Disease Awareness month, than to wear a color associated with hearts. Show your support, wear red and decide how you can get involved, and let others know you have made the choice to promote awareness and educate in your own way.

Check out these documentaries on Heart Disease and see what filmmakers and others in the creative industry are doing to raise awareness.
