Wear red for women on Feb. 3

The Heart TruthSupport women's heart health by wearing red on Friday, Feb. 3, when Cedars-Sinai will mark the sixth annual Marlene Wald Memorial Wear Red Day to increase awareness of heart disease as the leading killer of women.

A group photo will be taken at 9 a.m., cardiac risk assessment screenings will be held from 10 to 11:30 a.m., and Michele Hamilton, MD, director of the Heart Failure Program at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, will speak from noon to 1 p.m.

Cedars-Sinai's event is named in honor of Marlene Wald, the wife of KTLA news director, Jeff Wald. She died unexpectedly of a heart attack while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas in December 2006. She was only 51 and, as is the case with so many women, she didn't know she had heart disease.
