2015 Austin Go Red For Women Summit

February 26, 2015     9:00 AM | Thursday

Heart Disease is no match for the power of women's voices.

Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives.

The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. 

But There’s Still More Work To Be Done…

  • 1 in 3 women still die each year
  • 1,100 women are still dying every day
  • Only 25% of women have increased their physical activity
  • Only 56% of women know that heart disease is their No. 1 killer


Go Red For Women has raised $300 million for research and education while the AHA fought to pass legislation to help end gender disparities.

The scientific community now:

  • Publishes gender-specific results in research
  • Has established differences in symptoms and responses to medications between men and women
  • Follows women-specific guidelines for prevention and treatment

Go Red by wearing red, living a healthy lifestyle and speaking red by spreading the message that heart disease is killing our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends.
