go red logoThe American Heart Association’s bilingual heart-health movement for Latinas, Go Red Por Tu Corazón, will be returning to the 11th Annual Latin GRAMMY® Awards on Nov. 11, 2010, to bring the issue of heart disease – the No. 1 killer of Hispanic women – to center stage.

“Too many Hispanic women are still unaware that heart disease is their No. 1 killer. In fact, only one in three are aware of the threat to themselves and their family,” said Dr. Luz Marina Prieto, assistant professor of clinical medicine for the division of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism for the Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami. “Go Red Por Tu Corazón provides Hispanic women and their families the tools and resources needed to enjoy good heart health.”

Univision personality and Go Red Por Tu Corazón spokesperson Melissa Marty is encouraging Latinas to submit a photo of themselves in their favorite red dress or accessory, along with a summary detailing how they “Go Red,” for the chance to join her at the Latin GRAMMY® Awards.
