The American Heart Association is uniting with companies, community organizations, families and friends to "Go Red" on Friday, Feb. 3, to spread the message that heart disease and stroke cause one in three deaths among women each year - more than all cancers combined.
Jenni Grammer, Go Red For Women director at the Greater Cincinnati chapter, said that since the program started, 500 fewer women die every year from heart disease.
But through education, lots of important heart health information here (https://www.goredforwomen.org/fight-heart-disease-women-go-red-women-official-site/know-your-risk/find-out-your-risk/), we can save lives.
Cardiovascular diseases kill almost 1 in 3 women each year. The American Heart Association does an fantastic job educating the community in their continuous fight against heart disease and stroke. Everyone is encouraged to wear red that day.

You're young, you're healthy, you probably don't need to worry about your heart, right? Many women pursue health care, especially from specialists such as gynecologists, but aren't preparing themselves for their number one risk, she said.
Imbalances in blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, weight and body mass index prove key indicators for potential heart issues.
With over one in three women living with a form of cardiovascular disease, according to the AHA, almost half of those who are age 20 or over are black. But while it is the No. 1 killer of women, it is 80 percent preventable, with simple lifestyle changes like exercise.
