Babies Go Red for the hearts of the Women in their lives

BATON ROUGE, La. (LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) - In recognition of Go Red for Women, babies at Woman’s Hospital will be dressed in red hats for National Wear Red Day.

By wearing red the babies are sending a lifesaving message which is that heart disease is the number one killer of women age 20 and over, taking the life of one in three women each year.

"That means many of the women in these babies’ lives, including mothers, grandmothers, aunts and sisters, or even the babies themselves, could be affected by heart disease at some point during their lifetime. Yet only 1 in 5 women believe heart disease is their greatest health threat," according to press release from the American Heart Association.

This will take place at the Women's Hospital Friday 2nd at 10:15 a.m. For more information about Go Red for Women visit GoRedForWomen.org.
