The American Heart Association’s signature women’s initiative, Go Red for Women, is a comprehensive platform designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally.
With the fierce spirit of our researchers, volunteers, and staff -- we are made for this moment. We’ve taken the challenges and swapped them out for opportunities. We’re boldly committing to tackle the toughest issues of our time together, even when we’re physically apart.
This February, the AHA is kicking off American Heart Month by Calling a Code Red – a call for women to live fierce and be relentless in the fight against their #1 killer. This is a moment for women to take a stand, to unapologetically prioritize their health, and to drive change in their local communities ensuring equitable health for all.
Go Red for Women is going digital this year. Here are key dates to save – we will share more details as they become available.
