Texas House Goes Red





Today the Texas House of Representatives went red in recognition of our Go Red For Women movement. Heart disease is the number one killer of women in America, but sadly too few women and men are aware of that fact.

We asked legislators to wear red to for all the women in their life. St. Reps Myra Crownover (R-Denton) and Veronica Gonzales (D-McAllen) authored a resolution to make Friday February 6 National Wear Red Day in Texas.

On Friday we encourage you to break out your favorite red blouse or red tie for the women in your life. Wearing red on Friday will say heart disease is a serious health threat to all women. But it will also say it is preventable through healthy eating, an active lifestyle, and access to quality health care.
