Go Red For Women

Did you know that more than one in three female adults has some form of heart or vascular disease? According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease, including coronary heart disease and stroke, is the number one killer of women in the United States. Heart disease kills one woman per minute, taking more lives than the next four causes of death combined.

Symptoms of heart disease tend to differ between men and women, so it’s important to be educated – it could save your life! Learn more about how heart attack symptoms are different for women.
