Heart Center celebrates Go Red

As advocates of the American Heart Association's Go Red movement, physicians and staff at the Heart Center offered tools and events to raise awareness of heart disease.

Go Red: MGH Heart Center promotes healthy hearts

MGH Hotline 2.13.09 Cardiovascular disease (CVD) kills more women than the next five leading causes of death combined, yet only 57 percent of women are aware that CVD is their greatest health threat. To help increase awareness, the MGH Heart Center's Corrigan Women's Heart Health Program sponsored several events Feb. 2 through 6, as part of the American Heart Association's national "Go Red for Women" campaign.

Pregnancy and Heart Disease

February is American Heart Month, and the spotlight is on heart health. Throughout this month, we will be featuring articles including discussions with physicians in the Massachusetts General Heart Center to learn more about the topics surrounding heart disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S. for both men and women.

The importance of heart health

In honor of American Heart Month, the MGH Heart Center hosted a number of events throughout February to raise awareness and educate patients and staff about heart disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S.
