Alpha Kappa Alpha has a long tradition of wearing pink and green, but on National Wear Red Day, Friday 7th, the AKA’s will join millions of Americans in the fight against heart disease in women by wearing RED. In addition, Gamma Sigma Omega will host their educational seminar on heart disease prevention for women at WBSYMCA, 1110 May Street, Savannah, GA 31415. The public is invited.

Heart disease still remains the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of one in three women each year, and this is especially important for African-American women, who are at increased risk due to factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and diabetes. “Pink Goes Red” give Gamma Sigma Omega an opportunity to say, “I care about you.” If you are unable to attend please consider making a donation to American Heart Association, GoRed- ForWomen.org.
