Support the American Heart Association by attending the Cleveland Go Red Luncheon on Friday, February 14th at Hilton Cleveland Downtown hotel.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the No. 1 killer of women. It kills approximately one woman every 80 seconds and claims more women’s lives than all forms of cancer combined. The good news is that 80% of cardiac events may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.
But CVD is not just a problem for “older” women. Heart disease and stroke can affect a woman at any age, and new research shows heart attacks are on the rise in younger women. That’s why it’s important for all women to take charge of their heart health and encourage others to do the same.
Go Red for Women® (Go Red) is the American Heart Association’s movement to end heart disease and stroke in women. They are working throughout Cleveland to help women of all ages understand that CVD is their greatest health threat and empower them to take action to lower their risk.
It’s no longer just about wearing red. It’s no longer just about sharing heart-healthy facts. It’s about women of all ages standing together with Go Red to change the world. Because together, there is nothing we can’t achieve!
