Formula Help!

I have been working with this formula for hours and cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. I am trying to automate the health bubbles to turn Red, Yellow, Green and Blue based on where the task is in the start and due date. I got that part figured out. BUT I also want it to turn red if the "At Risk" column is flagged. I am using the IF(OR) formula on the red option so it turns red if the due date has passed OR if the at risk is marked. What am I doing wrong?!?!?! Thank you!

    That worked! I ended up with the below and it fixed the issue. Thank you so much!

    =IF([At Risk]3 = 1, "Red", IF(AND([Due Date]3 > TODAY(14), [Start Date]3 < TODAY(1)), "Green", IF(AND([Due Date]3 >= TODAY(0), [Due Date]3 <= TODAY(13)), "Yellow", IF([Due Date]3 < TODAY(0), "Red", IF([Start Date]3 > TODAY(0), "Blue")))))
