About Go Red For Women
Roughly 35 women die each day from cardiovascular disease and stroke in the New York City area. Approximately 80% of these deaths are preventable with awareness and simple lifestyle choices.
Launched in 2004, Go Red For Women is a year-round movement that harnesses the energy, passion, and power women have to band together to collectively wipe out heart disease. In NYC, the Go Red For Women Movement culminates with a celebratory luncheon bringing together 1,200 influential women and men from the corporate, philanthropic, fashion, and medical communities.
About STEM Goes Red
Women fill close to half of all jobs in the U.S. economy, but hold less than 25% of STEM jobs of which there are millions becoming available. As a science-based organization, the American Heart Association | American Stroke Association knows that women are vastly underrepresented in STEM fields, that health is deeply connected to social and economic determinants like wealth and education, and that heart disease and stroke are 80% preventable by following simple lifestyle steps.
STEM Goes Red Experience
We are building a brighter future, stopping heart disease before it starts, and paving the way to healthier communities. Innovation and big thinking takes young, emerging students committed to making change happen. Join us for an inspiring, day-long event to empower local, high school girls to explore STEM outside the classroom. They will gain first-hand experience, connect with inspiring leaders, and will walk away knowing they can make an impact through a career in STEM and become a collective force for health in their communities.
