‘Wear Red Day’ Feb. 2 to underscore women’s heart health

Posted January 29, 2007

The Idaho State University Janet C. Anderson Gender Resource Center invites the ISU and Pocatello communities to participate in wearing red for National Wear Red Day on Feb. 2.

National Wear Red Day is a day when Americans nationwide wear red to show their support for women’s heart-disease awareness. Participants are encouraged to wear a red dress, dress pin, lipstick, red tie or carry a red handbag.

For more information on keeping your heart healthy, join the Anderson Center for a talk “Love Your Heart” by Jodi Brown, heart health educator at Portneuf Medical Center, at noon Feb. 2 in Room 214 of the ISU Business Administration Building.

Every year, heart disease takes more women’s lives than men’s — but most women don’t know the risks or how to stay heart healthy. Participating in National Wear Red Day can help raise awareness of these issues.

For more information about National Wear Red Day or the Feb. 2 talk, contact Rebecca Morrow at 282-2805 or gndrctr@isu.edu.
