American Heart Association celebrates 15 years of saving women’s lives

CHATTANOOGA – For 15 years, the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement has positively impacted the health of women through the collective energy, passion, time and heart of local volunteers and supporters.

In recognition of the 15th annual National Wear Red Day on Friday, Feb. 2, , the American Heart Association is encouraging women and men throughout the Tennessee Valley and North Georgia to “Go Red” along with local and national news outlets, organizations and leaders.

Across the country, America is supporting the cause to stand up against heart disease, the No. 1 killer of American women. The Go Red for Women movement spreads awareness of signs and symptoms of heart disease and stroke, and encourages women to focus on their own heart health and advocate policies that support research and science related to improving survival rates.

Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association's national movement to end heart disease in women. We are committed to the fight, for as long as it takes. The American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement is an advocate for more research and swifter action for women's heart health. Because our health is non-negotiable, because we have the power to save our lives, and because the best force for women is women.

The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement is nationally sponsored by CVS and Macy’s.
