*Sunset Walk-In Healthcare celebrates Wear Red Day today to raise awareness
for women’s heart health. *
*[West Hollywood, CA]—*Today, Sunset Walk-In Healthcare and Occupational
Medicine Clinic celebrates National Wear Red Day to promote women’s heart
health. Wear Red Day is also celebrated nationally by *The Heart Truth* Red
Dress campaign, and locally at West Hollywood City Hall.
Heart disease is the #1 cause of death among women, and kills one of four
American women. Heart disease develops over time and can start at a young
age, even in the teen years. It's never too early, or too late, to take
action to prevent and control the risk factors for heart disease.
"Everyone should get a heart check, particularly women an men over 40 and
those with a family history of heart disease,” said John Foster, MD,
founder of Sunset Walk-In Healthcare.
*The Heart Truth* created and introduced the Red Dress as the national
symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 to deliver an urgent
wake-up call to American women. The Red Dress® reminds women of the need to
protect their heart health, and inspires them to take action.
