MEDINA – Today was National Wear Red Day to raise awareness of heart disease as the leading cause of death for women, taking more lives than all types of cancer combined. (Heart disease is also the leading cause of death for men.)

The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement advocates for more research and swift action for women’s heart health.  Cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education, motivation and action.
