February is American Heart Month - Go Red For Women Day on Beacon Hill

The Nation Goes Red in February and each year we have a State House event to wear red in order to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and help save lives. Losing even one woman to cardiovascular disease is too many. Women who suffer from cardiac arrest outside of a hospital are less likely to receive CPR from bystanders. The American Heart Association invites you to spread the word that February is American Heart Month and when a person experiences cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediately receiving CPR from someone nearby. Quickly performing CPR can double or triple the chance of survival.
