Diane and Rebecca - Thank you for your thoughtful, informed replies to my post. I especially appreciate the links you provided for the benefit of those who may read this long after Wear Red "Day" is over. I saw women everywhere in red today, and many of them proudly took photos and shared them on Facebook and other online sites. There were also many men joining in, including the CEO of one of the largest companies in my community. By working together to increase awareness of heart disease, and share information about prevention, warning signs and treatment, everyone benefits. Beyond that, more research related to women's specific cardiac needs is critical, and more women need to be included in clinical trials. It's good to have so many lay people and healthcare professionals addressing these concerns.

Best regards, Pat
