February: Women's Heart Health

February is "GO RED for WOMEN". This initiative highlights cardiovascular (heart) disease in women. This month, Advocating for My Uterus (AFMU) wants to highlight five facts related to heart disease:

1. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) kills women more than all types of cancer*

2. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) kills more than 50,000 black women annually*

3. The risk of women having a heart attack or developing heart disease greaterly increases during 10 years after menopause*

4. Women's heart attack symptoms differ significantly from men and is usually unrelated to heart pain*

5. Women are less likely to receive bystander CPR because rescuers think it may look inappropriate*

*All facts are from Go Red for Women and/or American Heart Association*

Let's continue to educate ourselves, our loved ones, and our community. Let's make a commitment to healthy and 'whole' lives.
