The American Heart Association's Go Red for Women® movement and Verily's Project Baseline have joined forces to launch Research Goes Red, an initiative calling on women across the United States to contribute to health research.
Join thousands of women in the fight against heart disease
Heart disease takes the life of 1 in 3 women. Participating in research could help change that. We need your help.Am I eligible?
Cardiovascular disease continues to be a woman's greatest health threat, claiming the lives of 1 in 3. That's a third of our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends, neighbors, and loved ones.1 In the past, clinical studies have not been adequately inclusive of women or analyzed women-specific heart health data,2 yet that is the best way to improve care and prevent heart disease altogether. We aim to change these statistics. Together, we can help save the women we love.
Research Goes Red aims to empower women to contribute to health research. Collectively, we can unlock the power of science to find new ways to treat, beat, and prevent heart disease in women. This collaboration unites American Heart Association heart health experts, patients, loved ones, and Verily, with its leading tools and technologies, to truly make a difference.
Together, there's nothing women can't achieve.Join us

American Heart Association is raising awareness
The American Heart Association's Go Red for Women® movement is the trusted, passionate, relevant force for change to end heart disease and stroke in women all over the world. While nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women, claiming the lives of 1 in 3 women. For 15 years, Go Red for Women has provided a platform for women to come together, raise awareness, fund lifesaving research, advocate for change and improve the lives of all women everywhere. The American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement is nationally sponsored by CVS Health, with additional support from national cause supporters.
