Put your Heart into it
 A Message from the American Heart Association

Let’s unite to prevent heart disease and stroke
A Message from the American Heart Association

February is American Heart Month, dedicated to raising awareness about heart disease. Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – more than all cancers combined. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. It’s time to put our hearts into it and Go Red For Women.

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women is a social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health. On February 3, 2017, National Wear Red Day, Lincoln Center is taking part in this nationwide initiative. We’re turning the Big L red and encouraging merchants and customers to wear red. Lincoln Center stands in support of living a healthy lifestyle and spreading the message that heart disease is killing our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends.

For more than a decade, Go Red For Women has fought for equal health opportunity for all women. While we’ve made remarkable progress, heart disease still claims the life of approximately one woman every 80 seconds. United, we can improve the health of all women.

Find out how you can Go Red at GoRedForWomen.org, and follow us on Facebook for up to date information on Lincoln Center’s participation.
