Hosted by the American Heart Association, the event is a time to celebrate women and empower them to improve their heart health. On this day, it's encouraged to wear red to not only advocate for more research and action to be taken towards women's health, but also in honor of those who have been affected by this bad disease. Some risk factors for developing heart disease include high blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol, physical inactivity, being overweight or obese, diabetes, or other metabolic diseases.
