Be Heart Healthy GO RED for Women Heart Health!!
Join the American Heart Association’s (AHA) campaign to make women more aware about their health and particularly their cardiac health.
Already in progress since February 1, the AHA’s campaign focus is “Today is the day” to get started, to motivate and inspire women to seize the opportunity to check out their “heart health” — by seeing their doctor and/or calling– OR CLICKING to– the American Heart Association. to find out what a woman can do to protect herself and her loved ones.
February is both a month of love and traditionally seen as “heart month”. What better way to show the ones you love how much you care than by checking on the state of your heart.
Fall in love with your heart — make an appointment with your doctor (and no, it doesn’t have to be a cardiologist. You can see a general practitioner or internist to check the state of your hear)
Get pumped up and take a stand against the one disease that kills more women every year than all the cancers combined!!

The short term goal is to obtain a 25% reduction in coronary heart disease and stroke risk by the year 2010. As the American Heart Association and the GO RED division of the AHA work toward that goal, the essential part of accomplishing that goal is to CHANGE the perception that heart disease is a “man’s disease.”
It’s a disease that affects everyone — men, women, even children. Do right by yourself and your loved ones. Visit your doctor. Visit the GoRedforWomen.org site and learn what you can do.
