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.

Heart Month is in February, but you can take steps toward healthier living all year round. Check out their Eat Smart tips and upcoming events here.

Kids' Health, courtesy of the American Heart Association:

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