February is American Heart Month – and on Friday, Feb. 1, the Women in NEOMED organization showed its support for the American Heart Association’s National “Go Red for Women” Day.
According to the American Heart Association:
- Cardiovascular diseases cause one in three women’s deaths each year, killing approximately one woman every minute.
- 90% of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke.
- Fewer women than men survive their first heart attack.
The good news? 80 percent of heart disease and stroke events could be prevented. Visit www.goredforwomen.org to learn more.
