Friday, Feb. 4, is National Wear Red Day. Join Americans nationwide in wearing red to show support for women’s heart disease awareness. This year, Dr. David Goff, director of NHLBI’s Division of Cardiovascular Sciences, will join NIH fitness instructor Shannon Oussoren for a live online stretching and yoga session. They will open with remarks on the importance of self-care in protecting heart health and go through a series of exercises to help viewers stretch and relax.
