Go Red: Making Heart Health a Priority

February 4, 2016

Join us to support Go Red for Women!

Each of us knows at least one person whose life has been affected by heart disease. Go Red for Women is a campaign with a simple goal: to help everyone, especially women, build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. How? By paying attention to your body, and learning to recognize the warning signs of disease before the worst occurs. What great goals!

Learning the signs and risks of heart disease is the first step to living healthier, but it also affects how you care for your family, as you learn how to make healthier decisions for them, too.

Learn the warning signs

Heart Attack Symptoms:

  • Sweating
  • Uncomfortable pressure squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back
  • Pain/discomfort in one/both arms
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Jaw pain
