Go Red for Women

Go Red for Women - Departments & Programs, UW Hospital and Clinics, Heart and Vascular Care (HVC)

Focus

UW Health is the exclusive Madison-area Go Red for Women sponsor. Go Red is the American Heart Association's national campaign to increase awareness of heart disease in women. 

Though heart disease is the #1 killer of both men and women, many women are still unaware of their risk for this disease. Women's symptoms of heart attack often differ from men. That's why the Go Red for Women campaign was created. To help women understand their unique risks and to help them take positive steps to improve their heart health.
