Roughly 41 women die each day from cardiovascular disease and stroke in the Los Angeles area. Approximately 80% of these deaths are preventable with awareness and healthy lifestyle choices.
Go Red For Women is a year-round movement that harnesses the energy, passion, and power women have to band together to collectively wipe out heart disease. Since it launched, the Go Red For Women movement has reduced cardiovascular death among women by 30%, meaning 330 fewer women are dying each day.
Despite these successes, heart disease remains the #1 killer of women. Far too many women are still unaware that heart disease is their #1 health threat and far too many women focused research projects go unfunded.
In Los Angeles, the Go Red For Women Movement is committed to reaching the 5 million women in all our diverse neighborhoods. We are committed to tripling the funding for research and public awareness of women and heart disease. Together, we can bring a voice to this silent killer to help save lives. Make it your mission to speak up and join the movement to help us save the lives of women who live and work in Greater Los Angeles!
This year's Los Angeles Go Red For Women movement includes three exciting events taking place in May, 2017 to celebrate our successes:
ROCK THE RED MUSIC BENEFIT- Enjoy a dinner music benefit at the Hard Rock Café in Hollywood, CA
GO RED FOR WOMEN LUNCHEON- Our signature Go Red luncheon features break out sessions and a heart healthy lunch.
DIA DE LA MADRE- Celebrate Mexican Mother's day with fellow Latina executives and their mothers.
