The first step in creating change is making yourself aware and knowledgeable of the risks at hand. Get involved this month (and throughout the year) in wellness & health campaigns. February is Go Red for Women's campaign month-an American Heart Association campaign dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.
So what can you do? Support Go Red For Women by participating in National Wear Red Day this Friday, February 5, 2016 and by donating to help fund research during American Health Month.
Why Go Red? Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. That’s why this year we are asking that you wear red on National Wear Red Day and Donate to Go Red For Woman. By doing so you help support educational programs to increase women’s awareness and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.
