For more than a decade, millions of women have united to raise their voices about heart disease as part of the Go Red For Women movement, State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I – Schenectady) said. These efforts have helped save lives and improve the health of thousands of women across the country.
While progress is being made, heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women. Today, te first Friday in February, is named National Wear Red Day to bring attention to this silent killer of women, Senator Farley said.
