Why Go Red?
Cardiovascular disease in the U.S. kills approximately one woman every 80 seconds. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red for Women advocates for more research and swifter action for women's heart health. That's why this year we are asking that you wear red on National Wear Red Day. By doing so you help support educational programs to increase women's awareness and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.
