Put On Your Red Dress

Are you wearing red today?

It’s "National Wear Red Day®" sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the American Heart Association to promote women’s heart health and educate everyone about heart disease in women. Heart disease is the number-one killer of women, and all over the nation people will be wearing red, and offices and cubicles will be the festooned with the color, to promote awareness of the issue.

Increasingly, researchers are documenting a strong link between heart disease and depression. For information on the important topic, see Psychiatric News here and here.
