IHRSA Supports National Go Red for Women Campaign

 

IHRSA staff proudly sporting their red for Go Red for Women Day.Last Friday IHRSA showed its support for Go Red for Women Day, a fundraising campaign led by the American Heart Association that asks Americans to wear red as a show of support for the fight against heart disease in women.

In addition to individuals and companies across the country going red, 14 state legislatures have introduced bills to officially recognize February 4th as "National Wear Red Day." They include: California, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.

Donations to Go Red For Women help support efforts to educate women and to fund breakthrough research by the American Heart Association that helps ensure women are represented in clinical studies.  Since 2004, through its fundraising efforts, Go Red For Women has contributed almost $44 million to women-focused research and has provided additional funds to life-saving educational programs and tools for physicians.
