Women Making History
This Women’s History Month, we honor the women who have transformed cardiovascular disease through groundbreaking discoveries – and we salute all of those making an impact today.
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 Go Red today.
Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year, but the simple truth is that most cardiovascular diseases can still be prevented with education and healthy lifestyle changes.
Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection® Concert
This year, the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection® concert returned to New York City on February 1st at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Music and fashion were at the forefront of the event — all to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease, the No. 1 killer of women.
Be the Beat for the Women in Your Life
Women who suffer from cardiac arrest outside of a hospital are less likely to receive CPR from bystanders. Sharell and Brittany were both saved by the courageous efforts of people around them who stepped in to perform CPR. Their powerful stories emphasize why learning CPR is so important to help save more women’s lives.

Women Who Made History in Cardiology
In the nearly 100 years since the American Heart Association was founded in 1924 we have seen incredible contributions in the fight against cardiovascular disease thanks to fierce women. Innovations and discoveries including the MRI, an international classification system for congenital heart defects, and the lifesaving power of the left ventricular assist device are all thanks to women and have changed the trajectory of cardiovascular disease.
