The American Heart Association Recognizes World Heart Day, Sept. 29/Go Red For Women and Centric TV Video Share

The American Heart Assocation’s Go Red For Women and CentricTV invite you to view and share Yewande Austin’s heart disease survivor story, using the hashtag #HeartCentric. The statistics are unacceptable — 1 in 3 women will die from heart disease – and minority populations are affected at disproportionate rates.

The refreshing news is that heart disease is largely preventable through good nutrition and physical activity; however, culturally relevant education and engaging, free programs like the Go Red Get Fit Facebook fitness challenge are key to moving individuals and communities to make simple lifestyle changes that lead to great results. In order to live a longer, healthier life, it’s crucial that we unite in generating awareness of heart disease and it’s risk factors (diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, family history, obesity), because your health can’t wait.
