Valentines Day is just around the corner and stores, blogs and magazines are saturated with shades of red and cutesy symbols such as hearts. We are all ready for the most "romantic" day of the year that falls in February but the 2nd month of the year is also very important because it is Heart Month
. Heart Month is a time to raise awareness for Heart Health and prevention of heart disease which is the leading cause of death in women. The Heart Truth
Red Dress Collection Fashion Show
is a wonderful event that takes place annually in New York during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and honors those affected by heart disease with a celebrity and designer infused runway extravaganza! Working for the American College of Cardiology
, I am lucky to be a part of an organization that champions for awareness and action to educate women about heart health. The launch of our new patient focused website is just a few days away and we are beyond excited for it but till then get all your heart health information via CardioSmart
. The gowns pictured above have been on display in our lobby for a few months and I wanted to share with all of you
the power of The Red Dress.
