February is National Heart Awareness Month, and February 1st is National Wear Red Day. Wearing red is an important part of the Go Red for Women goal to build awareness and urge women to take concrete actions to reduce their risk of heart disease. To show our support in building awareness, Genser Cona Elder Law would like to share this important information regarding women’s heart health to further the education on this horrible disease.
The American Heart Association makes a statement that it is no longer just about wearing red; it’s no longer just about sharing heart health facts. It’s about all women making a commitment to stand together with Go Red and taking charge of their own heart health as well as the health of those they can’t bear to live without.
As women, we tend to put others ahead of ourselves. But if we don’t take care of ourselves, we can’t take care of everyone else around us. If you don’t make your health a priority, who will?
According to The American Heart Association, while there are many similarities in the symptoms of heart disease in men and women, there are even more differences – differences that could save, or end your life if you don’t know them. So before you pass that jaw pain off as the result of sleeping funny or lightheadedness as something a snack or rest can fix, learn the symptoms. And don’t ignore them.
