Today, Friday, February 4, is National Wear Red Day!  This day is designed to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease, particularly geared towards women’s health. MMCCU team members are wearing red today in honor of this day. As a credit union that serves the healthcare industry, we wanted to help draw attention to this important issue.

Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. It impacts some women at higher rates than others, but the simple truth is that most cardiovascular diseases can still be prevented with education and healthy lifestyle changes.

Heart disease and stroke can affect a woman at any age, making it vital for all women to understand their personal risk factors and family history. Women can also experience unique life events that can impact their risk, including pregnancy and menopause. Furthermore, research shows that stress may impact health, making it important for women to understand the mind-body connection and how to focus on improving both their physical health and mental well-being.
