Today we are joining millions around the country to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke among women. Did you know that 1 in 3 women lose their lives to heart disease and strokes annually?

This year we answered the call of the American Heart Association and donned our red in support of our women. You can show your support by wearing red and encouraging the women in your life to know their numbers. What numbers you ask? Here they are:

  • Total Cholesterol
  • HDL (good) Cholesterol
  • Blood Pressure
  • Blood Sugar
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)

Monitoring these numbers will help women determine their risk for cardiovascular diseases.
