In the first ten years of the Go Red For Women movement, millions of hearts have been changed.
Ten years ago, the American Heart Association discovered that heart disease killed more women than men. And it took more women’s lives than all forms of cancer combined. So Go Red For Women was created – a network of women dedicated to education, support, and research.
Since then, millions of women have been educated on the dangers of heart disease, and made major changes in health care. Here are ten encouraging accomplishments that make all of those involved very proud:
1. Lives are being saved
- 34% fewer women now die from heart disease.
- More than 627,000 women’s lives have been saved.
