2015 Austin Go Red For Women Summit

February 26, 2015     9:00 AM | Thursday

Not just a man's disease. 

Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. 

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


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


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

When you get involved in supporting Go Red For Women by advocating, fundraising and sharing your story, more lives are saved.
