Go Red in Feb


Go Red For Women inspires women to make lifestyle changes, mobilize communities, and shape policies to save lives. United, we are working to improve the heart-health of women – mothers, sisters, daughters, friends – and their families in your community.

We all have a reason to live longer, healthier lives.

What’s your reason?

❮❮Learn about Melanie’s reason to Go Red

Over the past 10 years, through the Go Red For Women campaign, the American Heart Association has helped save more than 627,000 women from heart disease through education, awareness and research and policy advancements; 330 fewer women die from heart disease every day than did 10 years ago, but heart diseases and stroke are still the No. 1 killer of women taking the life of 1 in 3 women each year. Stay Healthy with annual Well Woman visits, know your family health-history and know your numbers (blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, BMI). Learn the steps to get healthier with exercise and start a program to quit smoking.
