Chicago, IL — Women, it’s time to stand together in the fight for our lives. Because heart disease is our No. 1 killer, more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. Fighting side by side is more powerful than any killer. To be part of a movement that is not just FOR women, but BY women, join us at the Go Red For Women Community Expo on Wednesday, February 27, 2013.
Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of 1 in 3 women each year. This means women just like you - mothers, sisters, friends - are dying at the rate of one per minute because they don't know what you know: heart disease kills.
“Taking good care of your heart means controlling your risk factors for heart disease, such as high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, physical inactivity, and being overweight,” said Diana Grant, MD, vice president of medical management at Advocate Trinity Hospital. “Having just one risk factor increases your risk of developing heart disease, and your risk skyrockets with each added risk factor.”
Women have come together in the fight against heart disease in women. Take your seat at the table with dedicated women and men just like you. Hear their survivor stories, learn how heart disease affects a family and how you can help stop heart disease in our lifetime.
Make It Your Mission to fight heart disease in women. By sharing this commitment, together we can help save lives. Be a part of this extraordinary day.
