Save the Date: Omaha Go Red For Women Expo Promotes Heart Health
The American Heart Association will host its annual Omaha Go Red For Women Expo (www.OmahaGoRedForWomen.org) on Tuesday, September 25 at Embassy Suites – Omaha – La Vista Conference Center. Chairperson of the event is Jane Miller, president and chief operating officer, Gallup.
The event is part of the Go Red For Women movement that encourages local women to take charge of their heart health by making it a top priority so they can live stronger, longer lives. Guests will have the chance to participate in free educational seminars, a health expo and silent auction. The ticketed heart-healthy dinner and program will feature survivors of heart disease and stroke.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement uncovers the truth about heart disease – an often silent, hidden and misunderstood killer – so that all women can share the truth. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in America today. Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death for females and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. More than one in three females has some form of cardiovascular disease taking the lives of more than a half million women every year – more than the next FOUR causes of death combined.
Tickets for the Omaha Go Red For Women Expo can be purchased at www.OmahaGoRedForWomen.org.
Go Red For Women is sponsored nationally by Macy’s and CVS Health and sponsored locally by Methodist Health.
