Wear Red Day was started by the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in 2003 to signify the fight against the number one killer of women in America: heart disease. One in three women die of heart disease and stroke.
This February marks the 10th anniversary of the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute
, Northwestern’s heart center that is the top-ranked in Chicago, Illinois and the surrounding states, according to U.S. News and World Report. To mark the occasion, physicians, nurses and staff at the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute and throughout Northwestern Medicine
wore red to stand in solidarity with all our patients, family and friends who suffer from heart disease.
Who do you wear red for? Let us know and remember, we are here for you. Learn more
