Verily, American Heart Association launch female heart health research collaboration

Google sister company Verily teamed up with the American Heart Association on Research Goes Red, a heart health research initiative that aims to empower more women to contribute to heart disease research.

Cardiovascular disease claims the lives of 1 in 3 women annually, according to the American Heart Association. To combat this, the AHA's Go Red for Women movement joins Verily's Project Baseline, which is dedicated to making research more inclusive and accessible. Research Goes Red will focus on helping inform more women about the value of participating in research and how to get involved.  

Through the collaboration, women will have the opportunity to participate in surveys and focus groups, contribute data for clinical research projects and test new tools and technologies relating to heart disease.

"Through clinical research we have an opportunity to uncover new insights about health, and by making it easy for individuals to participate, we can develop a comprehensive map that could inform treatment or care decisions," Verily Chief Medical and Scientific Officer Jessica Mega, MD, said in a press release.
