CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – It’s National Go Red for Women Day, a day to raise awareness of women’s heart health.

Heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women, but for women, there are specific things that put them at a higher risk for heart disease, like pregnancy.

According to the American Heart Association, exercise, healthy eating, and managing blood pressure can all help reduce the risk for heart disease.

Friday also is the first day of American Hearth Month.
