–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–
ADVISORY For Saturday, Nov. 5, 2005
Volunteers and health educators from the American Heart Association (AHA) will fan out to Albertsons supermarkets throughout the nation—including those in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area—to distribute Go Red for Women pins, answer questions about the AHA and remind consumers that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States. Albertsons store pharmacists will also be available to address heart-related questions from consumers.
To support the AHA’s Go Red For Women education campaign, Procter & Gamble will also donate $1 to the nonprofit every time consumers purchase three selected P&G products at Albertson through the end of November. Both companies hope to generate up to $50,000 for the AHA and boost awareness of heart disease in women.

The American Heart Association launched the Go Red For Women campaign in February 2004 to raise awareness that heart disease is the No. 1 killer in women in the U.S. Since 1924, the AHA has helped protect people of all ages and ethnicities from the ravages of cardiovascular disease and stroke, the nation’s No. 1 and No. 3 killers, which claim more than 927,000 Americans a year.
