National Wear Red Day
American Heart Association's Greater Southeast Affiliate sponsored the "Go Red for Women Day" with health screenings, goodies and a drawing for Go Red items.

Despite 10 years of progress, heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, striking more women than men. An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by cardiovascular diseases.

American Heart Association's "Go Red For Women" movement has been impacting the health of women for 10 years and more than 627,000 women's lives have been saved.
