Go Red for Women
The Heart Foundation’s Go Red for Women campaign raises the awareness of heart disease being the single biggest killer of Australian women.
In Australia, nearly 30% of women aged 30-65 have high blood pressure, yet most don’t know that it’s a risk factor for heart disease that must be managed. That’s why this June we are encouraging women to get a heart health check with their GP.
Pharmacists can get involved by promoting their blood pressure checks or hosting a ‘Go Red’ event.
