Progress is being made! The good news is 80% of heart disease and stroke events may be prevented by lifestyle changes and education. Since the onset of Go Red for Women more women are taking charge of their heart health through healthy lifestyle choices, knowing their health numbers, and being familiar with the signs and symptoms of heart disease that are specific to women. And the results are telling. About 90,000 fewer women are dying from heart disease and stroke each year because of these efforts. Our ultimate goal is to the move the needle so that we are no longer the # 1 cause of death in women.
