American Heart Association / Go Red For Women

Easy 93.1 partners with the American Heart Association year-round to raise awareness of the issue of women and heart disease.

Why it Matters: #lifeiswhy

The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women Campaign reminds you that heart disease is still the #1 killer of women. 1 in 3 women will die of heart disease - yet 80% of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.

Know your numbers (blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and body mass index / BMI) and schedule your annual well-woman visit. Learn more about the causes, your risk factors, and prevention tips here.

Learn more about the Go Red for Women movement and , Go Red Por Tu Corazon.

THE AHA says lowering your kids' sodium intake now can protect their health later. Visit for tips on how to stay healthy through the school year.
