Charleston, W.Va. - The Secretary of State's Office went "Red For Women" today, taking part in a national effort to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke.
The initiative is part of the American Heart Association's effort to change the perception that heart disease is a "man's disease," and according to the group's website the effort is paying off.
The American Heart Association says about 450,000 women die every year of heart disease - that's about one every minute.
The group also says that while 1 in 30 women die of breast cancer, 1 in 3 die of cardiovascular disease.
