Women and Heart Disease – what every woman needs to know

February 4, 2022

February 4th is National Wear Red Day®️

Go Red for Women is a platform dedicated to raising awareness about women’s heart risk and to inspiring women to take charge of their heart health

Cardiovascular disease claims the lives of nearly 500,00 American women each year, yet the disease is still identified as a man’s disease. Join us in raising awareness and encouraging all women to take charge of their health.

Did you know?

A woman has only a 50% chance of surviving her first heart attack

Recognizing the warning signals of a heart attack and seeking help immediately is essential.

 

Women often present different symptoms

The classic “elephant on the chest” experience might not be the only sign of a heart attack. Nauseas, excessive fatigue, back or jaw pain are symptoms commonly present in women.

 

Heart diseases kill 1 in every 3 women

Heart disease is the number 1 killer of women—killing more than all forms of cancer combined.

 

To learn more about the risk women face and the different ways to prevent heart disease, visit goredforwomen.org.
