The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the American Heart Association have entered into a formal agreement to raise awareness of heart disease and strokes among women Veterans and Servicemembers, and wives of Veterans and military members. VA will focus on educating women Veterans about their risks for cardiovascular disease through the use of "Go Red For Women" online resources. These include "Go Red BetterU," a free online nutrition and fitness program and "Go Red Heart Match," a database that allows women to connect with others who share similar experiences. For more information, call the VA at 1-800-827-1000, visit VA's Women Veterans Health Care webpage at www.womenshealth.va.gov, call 1-888-MY-HEART (1-888-694-3278) or visit GoRedForWomen.org at www.goredforwomen.org.
