Go Red For Women presents – Untold Stories of the Heart is a television special about heart disease that focuses on real women's stories of struggle, success and support. The television special will inspire conversation, compassion and a greater understanding of the important journey to heart health.

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the U.S.

“More than 42 million American women are living with one or more types of cardiovascular disease,” said Jennifer
H. Mieres, M.D., Go Red For Women spokesperson and director of Nuclear Cardiology at New York University. “If
women do not believe they are at risk, they are not likely to take preventative action, putting them at even
greater risk. ‘Untold Stories of the Heart’ will not only educate women about their risk, but give them tools to make
healthy choices.”
