Wear Red Canada is celebrated annually across Canada on February 13th to raise awareness about women’s heart health. Events are held across the country to serve as a reminder for all Canadians, but especially Canadian women, to be mindful, curious, and proactive in the management of our heart health and wellness.Heart disease is the number one killer of women worldwide and the leading cause of premature death in Canadian women.

heartGlobally, cardiovascular diseases affect 1 out of 3 women, yet women everywhere are under-studied, under-diagnosed, under-treated, and under-aware when it comes to their heart health. Worse, considering that 80% of a woman’s risk factors are within her control, heart disease is largely preventable.#HerHeartMatters #WearRedCanadawww.WearRedCanada.ca
