“There is nothing more powerful than knowing 80% of the time, heart disease is preventable. We can change the statistics surrounding women and heart disease together by putting our own hearts first.

The American Heart Association states that more than 80% of coronary events in women may be prevented with simple lifestyle changes, but prevention is hindered by the fact that many women do not realize heart disease is their number one killer—more than all cancers combined. For 15 years, the Go Red for Women movement has worked to close this knowledge gap and provide women with tools, resources and inspiration to build a healthier life.
