Date:1/30/2008

Campaign Helps Raise Awareness About Number 1 Killer of Women

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hoping to have all of Pennsylvania seeing red on Friday, the Pennsylvania Commission for Women is encouraging the commonwealth to participate in the American Heart Association's National Wear Red Day.

Red is the signature color of the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women campaign, which aims to raise awareness about heart disease, the number one killer of women.

"Fashionably speaking, red is considered a power color," commission Executive Director Leslie Stiles said, "but by wearing it on Friday, red will be an empower color, and a simple way to remind women that for all they do to care for others, they need to take care of themselves, too."

For more information about cardiovascular health and how the PA Commission for Women is helping to combat heart disease, visit http://www.pcw.state.pa.us or call the commission's hotline at 1-888-615-7477.

The Pennsylvania Commission for Women is committed to identifying and advancing the diverse needs and interests of Pennsylvania women and girls; to inform, educate and advocate for its constituents; and to provide opportunities to empower women and girls to reach their highest potential.
