American Heart Association Go Red for Women Luncheon
JW Marriot Indianapolis
Friday, February 21, 2014
9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
We are celebrating 10 years of Go Red For Women® - the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease in women. We are committed to the fight, for as long as it takes.
Only one in five American women believe that heart disease is her greatest health threat. This unfortunate reality has a lot to do with why the statistics on women and heart disease are so unsettling:
One out of three women dies from heart disease.
Nearly 460,000 women every year die from heart disease, this is about one woman per minute
Every year since 1984 more women than men have died of cardiovascular diseases.
43 million American women are currently living with Cardiovascular disease
Cardiovascular disease kills more women than the next 4 leading causes of death including all cancers
Our 2014 Chair is Darcy Burthay (left), MSN, RN, NEA-BC, Chief Operating Officer/Chief Nursing Officer, St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital.
Helping women overcome the challenges they face in achieving and maintaining good heart health is vital to the overall health of our community.
We greatly appreciate the generous support of all our volunteers, sponsors, auction item donors and attendees.
