Tennessee General Assembly Celebrates Wear Red Day

by Denise C. on Tuesday, February 4, 2014

On February 6, members of the Tennessee General Assembly wore red as Speaker Beth Harwell recognized House Resolution 142 by Representative Brenda Gilmore, declaring February 7 as National Wear Red Day. Several volunteers were in attendance.  “It is always a privilege to honor the American Heart Association and their continued efforts to improve women’s health," remarked Representative Gilmore. 

The fact is: Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.  That’s approximately one woman every minute!  You cannot fight heart disease if you do not know your risks.  Please take a minute to know your risks so you can live a longer, healthier life.
