Creating a Heartfelt Movement: America Goes Red Twitter Chat
Monday, January 14, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (CST)
Heart disease is still our No. 1 killer - it affects more women than men and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.
But the strength of mothers, sisters, daughters and friends fighting side by side is more powerful than any killer. It's time to should louder, stand stronger and demand change.
Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, attending cardiologist and Director of Women and Heart Disease of the Heart and Vascular Institute of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, will be joining us to tell the stories of survivors and activists to inspire, educate and engage a sisterhood of women, fighting side by side - always conveying Survival, Justice, Unity!
For 10 years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together. More than 627,000 women's lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over. In recognition of the 10th National Wear Red Day on February 1, 2013. Go Red For Women asks that across America, Women Go Red. Together, we can end heart disease.
