Indiana Statehouse goes red for American Heart Association Day

STATEHOUSE — State Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer (R-Indianapolis) participated in American Heart Association Day at the Indiana Statehouse on Tuesday.

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and more deadly than all other forms of cancer combined, yet only one in five women believe that heart disease is her greatest health threat. On average, nearly 24 women die from heart disease and stroke in Indiana each day.

In honor of American Heart Month, the American Heart Association offered free heart health screenings, as well as a heart healthy breakfast and lunch at the Statehouse. 

“Participating in the Go Red For Women movement today was an uplifting experience,” said Rep. Kirchhofer. “I will continue to advocate and raise awareness for this cause. Together, we can help fight back against heart disease and find a cure.”

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement has been impacting the health of women for 10 years. These women have proudly worn red, shared stories of survival and begun to understand the truth about women’s hearts and how heart disease can be prevented.

“When so many women are victims of one disease, we must take a stand to do everything we can to make an impact,” said Rep. Kirchhofer.
