Go Red for Women® is the American Heart Association’s global initiative to end heart disease and stroke in women. Launched in 2004 to close the gap in awareness, Go Red quickly expanded into a worldwide movement dedicated to removing the barriers women face to achieving good health and wellbeing.

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, killing more women than all forms of cancer combined. Learn what it means to Go Red For Women to help women like you fight back:

G:  GET YOUR NUMBERS

Ask your doctor to check your blood pressure and cholesterol.

O:  OWN YOUR LIFESTYLE

Stop smoking, lose weight, exercise, and eat healthy.

It’s up to you. No one can do it for you.

R:  REALIZE YOUR RISK

We think it won’t happen to us, but heart disease kills one of three women.

E:  EDUCATE YOUR FAMILY

Make healthy food choices for you and your family.

Teach your kids the importance of staying active.

D:  DON’T BE SILENT

Tell every woman you know that heart disease is our No. 1 killer.
