‘Go Red for Women’ highlights women’s heart health

Living

Cardiovascular diseases, which include stroke, claim the life of a woman about every 80 seconds. Yet, the American Heart Association says about 80 percent of these diseases may be prevented.  That’s what “Go Red For Women” is all about. 

The Go Red for Women luncheon, happening Wednesday, February 20, continues to serve as the cornerstone event of the Go Red For Women movement in local communities. This empowering event focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke by promoting healthy lifestyles, building awareness and raising critically-needed funds to support research and education initiatives.

Terri Archibeque, executive director of the American Heart Association in Albuquerque, stopped by the studio to discuss what women can do to detect the warning signs of a heart attack and stroke, as well as participation in the upcoming luncheon. 

Tickets to the event may be purchased online here.
