Women are strong. We are smart. We solve problems. Women can do anything men can do. And, there are some things we’re even better at – dying of heart disease and stroke. Like breaking barriers? Go Red! And help break the one against heart disease.
It’s not just a man’s disease. Each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke. But we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.
When it comes to beating heart disease and stroke, change can be the cure.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women is the world’s largest network standing together to end heart disease. For more than a decade, we’ve led the fight to protect women’s hearts through research and education. Millions of women are uniting by wearing a red dress, our public symbol of the fight. The more women we mobilize to stop our No. 1 health threat, the more lives we can save.
Together, we can end heart disease.
Join us for the 2015 Albuquerque Go Red For Women Luncheon. This year we will also be celebrating the 90th anniversary of the American Heart Association.
Date: Wednesday, February 25
Time: Doors at 8:30. Breakout session start at 9. Luncheon and keynote speaker at noon.
Location: Hyatt Regency Downtown
Attire: Wear Red!
This year, the luncheon includes educational breakout sessions that touch on topics like the warning signs of a heart attack, what to do if you’re having a heart attack, and ways to be healthy and take care of yourself and your family. But there’s also room for fun, including the return of our “Purse-onality” Auction, our survivor Fashion Show, inspirational presenters, a heart-healthy lunch, and more!
The luncheon aims to empower women to take charge of their heart health and fight cardiovascular diseases, which claim more women’s lives than all forms of cancer combined.
