WCVB wants you to Go Red!

Locally, members of the Gen. John Caldwell Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution are joining with staff at the Pennyrile District Health Department's Caldwell County Clinic to promote the American Heart Association's upcoming Go Red for Women Day, which is set for Friday, Feb. 3, this year. "Although we're making progress, we still have a long way to go since heart disease is still the number killer of both women and men". And even if you don't have active symptoms, it's still super important to know your risk factors and get regular check-ups.

"Look for information about your heart health at the American Heart Association's website www.goredforwomen.org".

According to the American Heart Association, simple changes can help you take better care of your heart and reduce your risk for heart disease. To prevent it, the AHA recommends following a heart-healthy lifestyle. Students should begin to watch their weight and shed extra pounds healthfully in college so that obesity doesn't become a larger health issue in the future, May said. These events will provide free heart health screenings for blood pressure, total cholesterol, triglyceride level, and body mass index (BMI), and experts will lead educational demonstrations focusing on nutrition and diet, diabetes, stress management, smoking cessation, yoga and other relaxation techniques. The website reports almost 90 percent of women have made at least one healthy behavior change, and more than one-third of women have lost weight.

Every 80 seconds a woman dies of heart disease or stroke. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action.
