American Heart Association (AHA, has named Ginny Curley to the Nebraska 2023 Woman of Impact class. Each year, one prominent local woman helps advance heart health and raise lifesaving funds to fight the number one health threat for women with the AHA, devoted to a world of healthier lives for all, as members of its Nebraska 2023 class.

For the inaugural Nebraska class, Curley was nominated by her peers to become an AHA Woman of Impact because of her passion and drive to make a difference in the community and raise awareness of women’s cardiovascular health.

“Cardiovascular disease remains our number one killer so it’s vital for all women to take charge of their heart health and encourage others to do the same,” said Curley. “While we’ve made some great strides over the years, we still have a long way to go.”

Woman of Impact is an extension of the American Heart Association’s long-standing Go Red for Women movement, a comprehensive platform designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally.

On April 6, the woman whose team has the highest number of impact points awarded through a combination of fundraising and mission impact activities will be named the 2023 Woman of Impact Award Winner.

The American Heart Association is recognized as a worldwide leader in cardiovascular science. For more information, visit
