The American Heart Association focuses on the cutting-edge of research, science, technology, and more. The Go Red for Women experience continues to be the cornerstone of the Go Red for Women movement in local communities. This empowering gathering focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke, sharing stories of people impacted by cardiovascular disease, and raising critically-needed funds to save more lives.
Since 2004, the Go Red for Women movement has educated millions of women as to their No. 1 health threat: cardiovascular disease. But now we face a new challenge, younger women and women of color are not aware that this threat is real. We continue to innovate ways to ensure all women are aware of their greatest health threat, their risks, and what they can do to reduce them. Good health is a journey, not a destination, and we want to walk hand in hand with women throughout their lifetimes as their trusted wellness partners.
Go Red for Women has evolved into a global movement and is a driving force in the world of health equity. We accelerate science, advance public health policy, and address the multitude of gender and racial gaps for women in research, healthcare, and more.
