Go Red for Women

On Feb. 3, 2012, you may see a sea of red in your office or at your school thanks to the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Day, a national campaign aimed at raising awareness of heart disease in women. Sadly, African-American women are more likely to die from heart disease than women of other races, which makes it all the more urgent that Black women be better informed. To learn how you can help support the campaign, visit the Go Red for Women website, and read on to get the facts about  heart disease and how to protect yourself and your family.  —Britt Middleton
