Press Release, Assemblyman Steve Hawley

In support of National Wear Red Day this Friday, Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R-Batavia) is encouraging residents to join him in wearing red to support women’s cardiac health. Heart Disease and stroke cause one in three deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds.

“National Wear Red Day is an important event that raises awareness for cardiac health and helps encourage individuals to live a healthy lifestyle,” Hawley said. “Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the United States, but education and action are integral parts of changing that statistic. I will be wearing red on Friday, and I encourage my fellow residents to show your support and do the same.”

Total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI) are important numbers to be aware of and monitor for optimal cardiac health. For more information, or to join the conversation and show your support, click here.
