Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute cardiologist, Dr. Mark Urman receives a formal city proclamation on behalf of AHA from Beverly Hills Mayor for National Wear Red Day.
What is Go Red For Women?
In 2004, the American Heart Association (AHA) faced a challenge. Cardiovascular disease claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year, yet women were not paying attention. In fact, many even dismissed it as an “older man’s disease.” To dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women – a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
