Go Red for Women 2013

Go Red for Women 2013

“Have a change of heart!”  Heart disease is the NUMBER 1 killer of women.  This means women just like you – mothers, sisters, daughters, and friends – are dying at the rate of one per minute because they simply don’t know that heart disease kills.  That’s why Sunny 95 and “Go Red For Women” are calling on women of all ages to make it their mission to fight heart disease.

What can you do to make a difference?

KNOW YOUR NUMBERS – It’s very important to get a solid baseline of information on your numbers:  blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and weight.  But no matter what your numbers say now, you can immediately make healthy changes to help you live a longer, better life.  More information can be found at Heart.org.  There’s even a quick, simple test you can take to get started – at heart.org/mylifecheck.

WEAR RED – Help us to raise awareness for this deadly disease by wearing red on Friday (February 3rd), making a visible statement for those who surround you.

MAKE IT YOUR MISSION – With the right lifestyle choices, 80% of cardiac events can be prevented.  Join us in making it our mission to commit to a heart-healthy lifestyle by turning personal choices into life-saving actions.

Check here for Stacy’s weekly Healthy Heart Tips!

Learn more about these healthy lifestyle choices at the GO RED FOR WOMEN Luncheon: Thursday, February 21st at the Hyatt Regency downtown.  The luncheon includes breakout sessions, networking exhibits, free health screenings and a heart-healthy lunch.  For more information, click here.
