According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer among women over the age of 20. Many are surprised to discover this is the case. But heart disease kills one woman per minute, taking more lives than the next four causes of death combined.
To help raise awareness of this disease – and help raise money to fight it – Texas Health Resources has continued its partnership with the American Heart Association as the cause sponsor for the 2012-13 Go Red™ for Women campaign. Go Red™ is the AHA’s nationwide movement that celebrates the energy, passion and power of women to band together and wipe out heart disease. The collaboration between Texas Health and the American Heart Association began in July 2011.
Texas Health and the American Heart Association work together to help women understand what lifestyle changes they can make to improve their heart health. From health tips to heart disease experts, we at Texas Health feel it’s important to share our resources to help improve the health of the people in the communities we serve.
