Senate Democrats Go Red for Heart Association Campaign

go red 2017SPRINGFIELD – Members of the Illinois Senate Democratic Caucus wore red today to support the Illinois Heart Association’s annual Go Red Day at the Illinois State Capitol. The goal of Go Red Day is to raise awareness of women’s heart disease, and to inform women of risk factors and warning signs of heart disease and stroke.

Heart disease and stroke kill more women than all cancers combined. Nearly 1 in 3 deaths among women are from heart disease and stroke. Luckily, 80 percent of heart disease events and strokes can be prevented through education and action.

Senators joined representatives and other officials to bring attention to women's heart health.

 

How you can “Go Red”:

Get Your Numbers: Ask your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose.

Own Your Lifestyle: Stop smoking, lose weight, be physically active and eat healthy.

Raise Your Voice: Advocate for more women-related research and education.

Educate Your Family: Make healthy food choices for you & your family. Teach your kids the importance of staying active.

Donate: Show your support with a donation of time or money.
