About Go Red
According to the American Heart Association (AHA) and a study from 2004, cardiovascular disease had claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year, yet women were not paying attention. To dismiss the myths and raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women, a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
