Go Red for Women

What is normal blood pressure in women?

The American Heart Association’s signature women’s initiative, Go Red for Women, is a comprehensive platform designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally.

It’s no longer just about wearing red; it’s no longer just about sharing heart health facts. It’s about all women making a commitment to stand together with Go Red and taking charge of their own heart health as well as the health of those they can’t bear to live without. Making a commitment to your health isn’t something you have to do alone either, so grab a friend or a family member and make a Go Red Healthy Behavior Commitment today. 


Most heart disease and stroke deaths are preventable, cardiovascular diseases continue to be a woman’s greatest health threat.

Go Red For Women has all kinds of ways to get involved and use your talents.

You’ll be fighting for yourself, for those you love, and for women all over the world. You’ll make lifelong friends, and more importantly, you’ll make a difference!
