February is designated as American Heart Month and the nation comes together, igniting a wave of red from coast to coast. From landmarks to news anchors and neighborhoods to online communities; this annual groundswell unites millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke.
Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women – and too many women, particularly our youngest most diverse women, remain unaware. The price of cardiovascular disease is high and 1 in 3 women will pay that price with their life.
This year, February is full of ways for you to Go Red and help raise awareness for women’s heart health. Visit our website for more tools and resources.
