Through the Go Red For Women movement, the American Heart Association has effectively communicated a message of heart healthy living and the statistic that one in three women is at risk for heart disease. The association has achieved its goal of reaching 1 million women through launching the Go Red Heart CheckUp and already beat its 2010 goal to reduce heart disease by 25 percent. However, there is still a gap in providing women with the next step—encouraging them to take action steps in an effort to improve their health.
