National Wear Red Day-Solstice Benefits

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States. Solstice—a national dental insurance benefits provider—donned red to raise awareness of Heart Disease and support the American Heart Association.

This is the fourth year Solstice employees came out in red to show their support and commitment to ending heart disease as well as raising awareness of the oral health / heart health connection. Solstice’s support doesn’t end on National Wear Red Day; the team will be participating in this year’s Broward Heart Walk as the finish line sponsor. To date, Solstice has raised over $100,000 for the American Heart Association.

“We are passionate about ending heart disease; the impact of heart disease has touched almost everyone in one way or another. As a dental insurance company, we know the impact oral health and periodontal disease has on heart health. As such, we are committed to raising awareness of this disease and helping raise funds that support research,” said Carlos Ferrera, COO Solstice Benefits and Broward Heart Walk Executive Leadership Team member. “The American Heart Association truly saves lives. I am proud that the Solstice family is part of that change in our community.”

The National Wear Red Day movement is celebrating a decade of success. Since its inception in 2003, tremendous progress has been made in the fight against heart disease in women. The American Heart Association’s campaign has:

• Saved 330 lives every day as 34 percent fewer women now die from heart disease
• Increased awareness of heart disease by 23 percent. More Americans realize that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women.
• Promoted healthy lifestyles for women: 
  o 37 percent are losing weight
  o 43 percent are checking their cholesterol
  o More than 50 percent exercise more
  o 60 percent have improved their diets
  o 33 percent have developed heart health plans with their doctor
