Are you wearing red today? SurroundHealth, along with our parent company, HealthEd, is participating in National Wear Red Day to show our support and advocacy for women’s heart health. Rooted in education, we feel that the best way to be heart healthy is to educate yourself and your loved ones. So today we are sharing some of our favorite resources on heart health for women:
- AHA: Educate and Advocate for Heart Disease Prevention- Go Red for Women provides many opportunities for women everywhere to learn the facts about heart disease.
- CDC: Educational Materials for Professionals- Access fact sheets, tools and other resources on women and heart disease.
- The Heart Truth®- The Heart Truth is a national awareness and prevention campaign about heart disease in women sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Heart Truth campaign includes the following three components: professional education, patient education, and public awareness.
