“More than 1 in 3 women is living with some form of cardiovascular disease. The more a woman knows about heart disease, the better chance she has of beating it.” (American Heart Association, goredforwomen.org).

On February 1st, staff at VA Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPHCS) kicked off American Heart Month with “National Go Red Day for Women.” That's when the health care system launched its month long social media campaign to help spark awareness about the risks of heart disease and stroke - and efforts it's taking to help save lives of women Veterans and their families.
