Heart Disease Doesn’t Care What You Wear –
It’s the #1 KILLER OF WOMEN
The Red Dress is the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness and the centerpiece of The Heart Truth – a national awareness campaign that warns women about their risk of heart disease and inspires them to take action and lower risk. The Heart Truth is sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
