 Additional Information: Go Red for Women is the American Heart Association’s national campaign to increase awareness of heart disease — the No. 1 killer of women — and to inspire women to take charge of their whole body health.  The grassroots campaign has since grown into a vibrant national movement as more women, men, celebrities, healthcare professionals and politicians embrace and elevate the cause of women and heart disease. Locally the year-long campaign kicks off at the annual Go Red for Women Luncheon on May 20, 2011 The event provides women of all generations with tips and information on healthy eating, exercise and risk factor reduction, such as smoking cessation, weight maintenance, blood pressure control and blood cholesterol management.

  • One in three women has some form of cardiovascular disease.
  • Cardiovascular disease kills approximately 460,000 women per year.
  • 43 million American women are living with cardiovascular disease.
