More than 400 supporters will gather at the Go Red for Women Celebration Luncheon and Love Your Heart Workshops to celebrate the campaign’s 10th anniversary. Guests will learn facts about women and heart disease while supporting the American Heart Association and its mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
“For 10 years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together. As a result, more than 627,000 women’s lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over,” says Gabrielle Finley-Hazle, chairwoman of the event and CEO of Florida Medical Center, a campus of North Shore. “With the right information, education and care, heart disease in women can be treated, prevented, and even ended.”
The celebration includes educational workshops, interactive boutiques and a heart-healthy luncheon.
The statistics are alarming. Heart disease is the number one killer of women and affects one in every three women across the United States. An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by heart disease.
Heart disease is a killer that strikes more women than men, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. In 2004, the American Heart Association launched the Go Red for Women movement to empower women to take charge of their heart and in turn, lead a longer, stronger life. For 10 years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together. Visit GoRedForWomen.org for more information.
