The the Go Red for Women organization, created in 2004 by the American Heart Association, has a goal to raise awareness among women that heart disease is the number one killer among women and realize that it is not just a killer for older men. The AMA created Go Red to promote empowerment among women to take charge of their health and help prevent this terrible killer from taking the lives of so many women.
