Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: January 17, 2017 10:16 AM
From: Senator Christine M. Tartaglione and Sen. Lisa Baker
To: All Senate members
Subject: Resolution- National Wear Red Day
In the near future, Senator Baker and I intend to introduce a resolution recognizing Friday, February 3, 2017, as “National Wear Red Day” in Pennsylvania.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined; yet, few females take the necessary steps to prevent, detect and treat this disease. It is hoped by recognizing National Wear Red Day in the commonwealth, we will increase public awareness of cardiovascular disease and the risks it poses to women. If women are better informed of the threat of this number one killer, they will be able to undertake more active roles in their own heart health, while minimizing the dangers of heart disease and stroke.

Please join us in sponsoring this important resolution and wearing red on February 3 in support of this worthy cause.

Members who co-sponsored this legislation previously include Senators Ward, Greenleaf, Brewster, Sabatina, Costa, Argall, Fontana, Dinniman and Mensch.

Introduced as SR18
