This Friday, February 6th, is National Wear Red Day, a day to Go Red for Women to raise awareness about heart health.
Heart disease is a leading community health challenge for Cobb County. Cobb & Douglas Public Health reports that heart and vascular disease are the No. 1 cause of death in adults in Cobb, Georgia and the United States. The health district recently reported 4.1 percent of adults in the two-county area suffered a heart attack in 2011.
