Women's Heart Health

Amarillo, TX—Northwest Texas Healthcare System participated in National Go Red Day on February 3, which spreads awareness about women's heart health. Wearing red on Go Red Day encourages women to be aware of their heart health and prevent conditions like heart disease and stroke. Heart disease and stroke cause the deaths of one in three women each year, or one woman every 80 seconds. Education and action can prevent up to 80 percent of cardiovascular and stroke deaths.
