Take the Lead, Wear Your Red
Take the lead and wear your red on National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 7, 2014. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, killing more than all forms of cancer combined. Many of these deaths can be prevented, but most women don’t notice the symptoms until it’s too late. Show your support and help UT speak out about this silent killer. Wear your red this Friday and join us at Noon in the Lobby of the Hospital, Health Science Campus or at 2:00 PM in the Trimble Lounge, Main Campus. Just for wearing your red you will receive a special red treat and be included in a group photo. Information regarding the Toledo Heart Walk will also be available, sign up to be entered into a raffle for great prizes! If you are wearing red as a survivor of heart disease or as a tribute to someone special in your life, we want to hear your story!
