Go Red for Women is crucial in driving local support to fund life saving research and to educate women. Though we have made great strides in the advancement of women's cardiovascular health, we still have far to go. We need your help now so that our mothers, sisters and daughters have a chance to fight this silent killer. By sharing a commitment to speak up, spread the word and support the research, you can help save lives.
I am honored to announce that I am once again serving on the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Executive Leadership Team in New York City. Go Red for Women is the global initiative to end heart disease and stroke in women. For the past 15 years, the Go Red movement has advocated for representation of women in research and brought them together to take charge of their well-being. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, yet 80% of all incidences are preventable with education and healthy lifestyle choices. Since its inception in 2004, Go Red for Women has raised $600 million dollars to support research, education, advocacy, prevention, and awareness programs.
I hope you will stand alongside me and consider making a donation to help save women’s lives!
