More women than men die each year from heart disease and stroke. These are women we know. They are our wives, sisters, mothers, daughters and friends. In fact, one of every three women will die from heart disease, yet less than 60 percent of women recognize heart disease as the No. 1 killer of women.
Through the Columbus Go Red For Women® movement, the American Heart Association is working to decrease those numbers. We are working to empower women and take action to raise awareness and funds to help women everywhere GO RED.
Heart Disease in Women
There’s a lot of talk about inequality between men and women, but one area in particular where women are leading in record numbers: heart disease.
Know Your Risks
Your heart is in your hands. Heart disease and stroke are largely preventable if you work to lower your risks. Learn more by taking the Go Red Heart CheckUp.
Share Your Story
This is a place for women to share their hopes, their fears, and most of all – their fight with heart disease or stroke. By sharing your story, women like you will find comfort in knowing they are not alone.
Are you aware of just how powerful you are? You have the power to stop a killer. And you don’t need to become a kung fu master or undercover agent to do it. All you have to do is adopt a few simple habits that’ll put you on the road to a heart healthy lifestyle.
