Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women. More women than men die every year from heart disease and stroke. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red For Women advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. That’s approximately one woman every minute! Learn more about heart disease in women.
We encourage you to visit the Go Red for Women tools and resources page for healthcare providers and help raise awareness of heart disease and stroke in women.
