The Heart Truth® - National Wear Red Day®
National Wear Red Day 2012
Friday, February 3, 2012 when Americans nationwide wore red to show their support for women's heart health. They showed off their favorite red dresses, red shirts, red ties, and Red Dress Pins to raise awareness that heart disease—the #1 killer of women—is largely preventable. Thank you to everyone who joined the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), Office on Women's Health (OWH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, and many other groups to promote National Wear Red Day in their local communities.

The Red Dress® and National Wear Red Day
The Heart Truth® created and introduced the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 to remind women of the need to protect their heart health, and inspire them to take action. National Wear Red Day promotes the symbol and provides an opportunity for everyone—men and women alike—to unite in this life-saving awareness-to-action movement by wearing anything and everything red!
