Go Red Day

February 1st is National Wear Red Day, a campaign to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease and its affect on women. In 2003 the American Heart Association faced a challenge.  How could it communicate to the general population that cardiovascular disease claimed the lives of 500, 000 women each year? Known as the “older man’s disease,” cardiovascular disease is, in fact, the nmber one killer of women each year. The American Heart Association, along with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Intitute created National Wear Red Day to raise awareness of this issue.  Each year on the first Friday in February, millions of men and women come together to wear red, take action, and fight this deadly disease. All week long at Fisher Jones Family Dentistry we have been handing out cards as a reminder to recognize this important day and “Wear Red!” If you don’t have a scheduled appointment, please stop in and grab a card. We would love to see you!
