BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — The American Heart Association is looking to bring awareness to the heart health of women with their movement "Go Red for Women."

In honor of National Wear Red Day Friday, Dignity Health Cardiologist Dr. Caleb Thompson joined 23ABC Live this morning to talk about what you can do to stay healthy and what signs you should watch out for.

By dressing up with red accents designed to raise awareness, individuals will join others nationwide in supporting the fight against cardiovascular disease, the leading killer of women.

Kern County landmarks including Dignity Health Bakersfield Memorial Hospital, Bakersfield Country Club, the Fox Theater, Jim Burke Ford and Chain, Cohn and Stiles on Chester will showcase their support of the Go Red for Women movement by lighting in red. Buildings have been asked to begin their display on Thursday to serve as a reminder for community members.
