It's a beautiful day in February, it's National Go Red Day! Today we wear red across the nation to bring awareness to women about heart disease. I love this because I sometimes feel that pink and breast cancer have flooded the markets to the point that women think if they take care of the tah tahs all is covered. As women we must be diligent in our health and welfare. After all, women are the caretakers of the family. Find a family physician that you feel comfortable with, make healthy choices, and get moving! Yes, you heard me try to do some physical activity everyday. Don't ignore the warning signs your body is telling you. If you are experiencing a new symptom don't be afraid to discuss it with your healthcare provider. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
