February is American Heart Month, so let’s start looking for our red dresses to support the fight against heart disease in women!

And as in every year before, The Heart Truth®, a campaign created by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (HGLBI), invites you to join in creating heart disease awareness.  This year is even more special as it is The Heart Truth’s 10th anniversary.  Here are some ways to get involved:

1. Join the Twitter Party – Follow @TheHeartTruth for a special #HeartChat on Twitter.  Come and participate in the conversation on how to talk to your doctor about heart disease, healthy ways to protect your heart, and how to reduce your risk. Friday, February 3th, 3-4 p.m. EST.

2. Share the excitement of the Red Dress Collection Fashion Show through Facebook & PinterestWatch the show LIVE on their Facebook page at 7:00 pm ET on February 8th as the celebrity models grace the catwalk.

3. Wear your Red Dress on National Wear Your Red Dress Day – February 3rd, 2012. Take a picture and share it on The Heart Truth Facebook page.

4. Share the Healthy Action Badge – Become a part of The Heart Truth® Healthy Action Community by pledging to take action to reduce your risk of heart disease.  Post your Badge on your blog or personal profile page and share with others.

Heart disease scares me to death (hmmm no pun intended there)

Seriously, it is a silent killer.

Love this post!

As Latinas, is a lot more important that we take care of our health, since heart disease is the #1 killer in Latinas!

We think of heart disease as strictly a man’s disease…thank you for sharing and helping to raise awareness that women are just as vulnerable.
