Launched in October 2014 by the Women's Heart Alliance - a collaboration between the Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute and the Ronald O. Perelman Heart Institute at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and two major philanthropists in business and entertainment, Barbra Streisand and Ronald O. Perelman - this nationwide campaign aims to build greater awareness and knowledge of the women's heart health epidemic and gender differences.
Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association's national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women because it’s not just a man’s disease. The movement advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health. GoRedForWomen.org offers guidance on how to assess your risk for and prevent heart disease.
