Inventor of the 1st Heart Drug for women

Women are 10 times more likely to die of heart disease or stroke than of breast cancer!

National Wear Red Day is in February each year. You may have seen the Fashion Show in New York and nationally, which has been sponsored, among others, by Macy's, Merck, Swarowski, Coca Cola, Johnson&Johnson, and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. As reported by the NIH publication—The Heart Truth—the Fashion Show has rolled out the red carpet for dozens of celebrities donning one-of-a-kind Red Dresses by America’s top designers for the Red Dress women’s heart health awareness events.

The Red Dress Campaign each year in February (Heart Month) recognizes and publicizes the fact that heart disease is women's greatest health risk. The celebrity modeling of top designer dresses created especially for the event is a highlight to be anticipated preceding Valentine's Day each year, with a wear Red day on one of the first days of February.

And all year, you can wear the Red Dress pin available from The Heart Truth site, and show your support for increasing awareness that heart disease and cardiovascular disease are the number one killer of women and men.
