UNDATED (WKZO) -- Today is National Wear Red day, to promote heart disease awareness in women. It’s well known what happens to men when they have heart attacks, but the symptoms for women can be different and more difficult to recognize.
Dr. Jennifer Mieres says their mission today is education. Often women go untreated until it’s too late or they have done damage to their hearts by deferring treatment. So if you see a lot of people wearing red today, that’s the reason.
