February is Heart month! In order to raise awareness about women and heart disease the Canadian Women’s Heart Health Alliance is spearheading a national grassroots “Wear Red Canada” movement.
1 in 3 Canadian Women will be affected by heart disease in their lifetime. Recent reports indicate that women have been under researched, under diagnosed and misinformed on symptoms. Together we can make a difference in the need for more public education and research into women’s heart health. Be part of the national campaign by wearing red on February 13 and posting to social media using the hashtag #HerHeartMatters. Encourage your office, family and friends to participate. See the social media tab for more information.
We also invite you to participate in the events being held in Winnipeg. See the Winnipeg events tab.
