Feb. 1, 2013, marks the 10th Year of the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women®movement — 10 years of fighting to save women's lives from heart disease. While the progress has been significant, there's a long way to go. Here's why:
Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.
Heart disease kills more women than men, at an average rate of one death per minute.
Heart disease kills more women than all kinds of cancer combined.
Please join the nation in wearing RED on Friday, February 1st. Let's become more aware of heart disease and its deadly impact on women. We can fight back by being physically active, eating a heart-healthy diet and learning about heart disease and its risk factors.
