Special thanks to State Senator Donna Nesselbush and State Representative Brian Kennedy for introducing resolutions officially proclaiming February 7 as "National Wear Red Day" in the State of Rhode Island. AHA staff and volunteers Laurie Stephenson and Miriam Plitt were on hand as the Senate and House recognized National Wear Red Day during their floor sessions on February 6. Senators and representatives wore red dress pins to show their support for the fight against heart disease in women.
The State House Dome will be illuminated red February 7 through February 14 in recognition of National Wear Red Day and American Heart Month.
