Bay Area Go Red BetterU

The American Heart Association is accepting applications for women who would like to participate in the 2023 Greater Bay Area Go Red for Women BetterU challenge - a program that could save your life.

What is Go Red BetterU?


Research shows that most cardiac events can be prevented by making small, yet life-saving choices for your heart. Go Red for Women is the American Heart Association's national movement to make women aware of their risk for heart disease and provide inspiration to take action to reduce that risk.
