Heart Month

Participate in these classes and events to learn more about healthy heart care

National Wear Red Day is Friday, Feb. 2

Norton Heart & Vascular Center is a proud supporter of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement. National Wear Red Day on Feb. 2, 2018, will mark 15 years since the first National Wear Red Day drew awareness to heart disease being the No. 1 killer of women. Today, nearly 300 fewer women die from heart disease and stroke each day, and heart-related deaths in women have decreased by more than 30 percent over the past 10 years.

Despite this progress, more work is crucial. One in three women dies of heart disease or stroke each year, but you can help make a change. Commit today to:

  • See your primary care physician each year.
  • Know your numbers.
  • Eat healthy and exercise regularly.
  • Properly manage stress.
  • Don’t smoke, or quit today.

Tell us why you wear red!

Share your story or motivation for wearing red. We are looking for inspirational stories and firsthand perspectives on why you wear red, what the day means to you and what everyone should know about taking care of their heart.

Share with us on social media

Join us for a heart month activity to start taking care of your heart today.
