Why is the red dress the symbol of women and heart disease?
In 2003, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the American Heart Association and other organizations committed to womenâ€™s health joined together to raise awareness of women and heart disease. The NHLBI introduced the red dress as a national symbol for women and heart disease awareness and the American Heart Association adopted this symbol to create synergy among all organizations committed to fighting this cause.
By working together to advance this important cause, the American Heart Association, NHLBI, and other womenâ€™s health groups will have a greater impact than any one group could have alone.
