Not only is February remembered for Valentine’s Day, it is also American Heart Month! The color red represents strength, joy and power and during American Heart Month, it symbolizes the fight against heart disease in women.
One in three women die of heart disease or stroke, according to the American Heart Association. Education and lifestyle changes, however, can prevent 80 percent of cardiac events.
The cause behind the color is Go Red For Women, a movement the AHA started more than a decade ago to fight a life-threatening lack of awareness about heart disease in women, which extended to many physicians and researchers. Since Go Red began in 2004, more than 670,000 lives have been saved, according to AHA statistics. In addition, women have learned more about why they should know their risks and what do to about them. To learn more about the risks, click here.
If you stop into any of our offices on Friday, February 13th, you will see that all of our staff will be adorned in red to celebrate this important month and for the work that the American Heart Association does to bring about awareness of heart health.
