Wear Red Day Aims to Raise AFib and Heart Disease Awareness

Local News

Friday is National Wear Red Day, aimed at raising awareness about Atrial Fibrillation and cardiovascular disease, particularly for women. 

According to the American Heart Association, “more women than men die every year from heart disease and stroke. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.”

Dr. Imran Sheikh, electrophysiologist with Aurora BayCare, stopped by Local 5 This Morning to talk about what signs to look out for to maintain a healthy heart, and how women are affected compared to men.
