Research Goes Red FAQs

What is Research Goes Red?

Research Goes Red aims to empower women to contribute to health research.

Together, 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 make a difference.

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.

In the past, clinical studies haven’t included enough women or analyzed women-specific heart health data. We aim to change these statistics. Together, we can help save the women we love.

How can I participate in research?

Joining Research Goes Red takes three easy steps and less than 15 minutes.

Even better, joining and participating in research can be done from the comfort of your own home.
