Cardiovascular disease kills one woman about every 80 seconds. The good news is, about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases and stroke can be prevented with awareness and lifestyle changes. The Upper Valley Go Red for Women Luncheon, scheduled for February 7 at the Hanover Inn in Hanover, NH, aims to educate and inspire women to take action to end heart disease and stroke. Go Red for Women, the American Heart Association’s signature women’s initiative nationally sponsored by CVS Health, is a comprehensive platform designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally.
