The American Heart Association’s (AHA) “Go Red For Women” encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also inspires action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. “Go Red For Women” challenges women to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. “Go Red For Women” also gives women the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life. Juli Stone Moran is on the “Go Red for Women” San Diego Executive Leadership Team as well as the Board Chair for the San Diego Division.


10 Things About Juli Stone Moran & “Go Red for Women”


#1 I grew up in Tempe, Arizona – my dad was an exercise science and wellness professor at ASU.


#2 Australia/New Zealand are at the top of my list for places to travel.


#3 Bhutan is known for promoting gross national happiness over GDP. I loved learning about the culture while also experiencing incredible hiking and biking there.


#4 We need balance, not just for ourselves, but for those around us and to find a sense of purpose in our local communities.


#5 I have two horses – they are both a passion and a hobby – I compete in a western discipline called “reining” and am a World Champion.


#6 My horse trainer is roughly 25 years younger than me. When I think of her, the Abraham Lincoln quote comes to mind “I had a friend that believed in me and I was too afraid to let them down.” She puts me in positions to do things I never thought I could do, such as entering me in competitions that I would not have pursued due to doubt about my capabilities.


#7 As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women may experience other symptoms that are typically less associated with heart attack, such as shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain


#8 Heart disease is the number one killer of women. Cardiovascular disease causes 1 in 3 deaths among women each year.


#9 Use the letters in F.A.S.T. to spot a Stroke:


F = Face Drooping; A = Arm Weakness; S = speech Difficulty; T = Time to call 911.

#10 “Go Red For Women” is focused on both prevention and earlier, more accurate diagnosis for women. Know the signs of cardiovascular disease and stroke and make strides to improve your health by focusing on exercise, stress management, sleep and diet.
