Women’s Heart Disease
1 in 3 women die from heart disease and stroke every year, but it can be prevented. Although 9 in 10 women have at least one risk factor for developing heart disease, only about half are aware of the issue at all. This new PSA campaign from the Ad Council and American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women works to increase awareness about heart disease and stroke in women and emphasize that they are not just a man’s disease. At GoRedForWomen.org women can sign up to be members, learn about heart disease, their risk for developing it, and find tools for living heart healthy lives.
