Health Services promotes National Wear Red Day

Health Services promotes National Wear Red Day

Friday, Feb. 5, marked the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day as part of their “Go Red for Women” campaign.

In February 2020, approximately 60 members of the campus community created and photographed a red heart in support of women’s heart health. Three members of the MTSU community who have been impacted by heart conditions were honored.

This year, the campus was invited to celebrate in a virtual capacity, as True Blue once again went RED for women! A collage of this year’s participants are shown below.

While the campus community couldn’t gather in person because of COVID-19, MTSU Health Services asked campus community members to still show support for women’s heart health by doing three things

1. On Friday, wear your red.

2. Take a picture wearing your red and tell us who you’re supporting.

3. Post your photo using the hashtag #truebluegoesred, share it in the Facebook event page, or submit it to pix@mtsu.edu.

All-day long, Health Services and Health Promotion shared posts of students, staff and faculty wearing red in support of the women in their lives affected by cardiovascular disease.

For those who didn’t want to submit a photo? They could still GO RED!

Get Your Numbers: Ask your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose.

Own Your Lifestyle: Stop smoking, lose weight, be physically active and eat healthy.

Raise Your Voice: Advocate for more women-related research and education.

Educate Your Family: Make healthy food choices for you and your family. Teach your children the importance of staying active.

Donate: Show your support with a donation of time or money.

Thank you for your support of Health Services programming! Mark your calendars for Wear Red Day 2022, when True Blue will again Go Red on Friday, Feb. 4, 2022!
