The City of Nashville has “gone red” to save lives and raise awareness for heart disease in women.

Heart disease, often called the silent killer, has no noticeable symptoms and is referred to as the number one killer of women.

According to health experts, it’s more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. 

As a result, the American Heart Association launched Go Red For Women and designated February 5 as National Wear Red Day.   

Many people are using the hashtag #NashGoRed on social media to show their support. The NewsChannel 5 Morning team also participated.
