Chief Legal Officer, University Hospitals
I'm excited to be chairing in this great campaign and I am glad that you agree that improving heart health for women is an important initiative for all of us.
Go Red For Women is your opportunity to love your heart, to honor your wife, to cherish your mother, remember your grandmother, to celebrate your daughter, to focus on you. This work is an ongoing educational and awareness focus of the American Heart Association here in Cleveland, and across the country.
I invite you to join us and make it your mission to Go Red!
Welcome to the Cleveland Go Red For Women Health Expo & Luncheon! We’re delighted you are here and appreciate your interest in learning how you can advance health, stop heart disease and save women’s lives. That’s what the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement is all about.
Heart disease isn’t just a man’s problem. It’s a woman’s problem, too. In fact, it’s the No. 1 killer of women. And, tragically, far too few women realize their risk from this preventable disease. We need to raise women’s awareness of their risk and protect our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and ourselves.
You can help, starting today. Here’s how:
First, take charge of your own heart health. Visit your doctor. Know your numbers (learn more at www.GoRedForWomen.org). You can improve your blood pressure, cholesterol and other numbers by making lifestyle changes. You’ll be healthier and look and feel better, too.
Second, join the American Heart Association in making it your mission to fight heart disease in women. Help spread the word that heart disease is women’s No. 1 killer. Share what you learn today with your family and members of your community. Tell five women you want them to live and we can help stop heart disease in our lifetime.
Third and last, consider making a contribution. Your donation today will make a difference in the lives of women here and across the country. You can help fund local and national Go Red activities that support awareness, research, education and community programs that benefit women.
Thank you again for being here. My hope is that you won’t leave today without committing to making a difference by joining the Go Red For Women movement — women everywhere need your help. Only one in five women believes that heart disease is her greatest health threat. We believe reducing risk and preventing heart disease starts with education — and you. There’s so much to do, and so much at stake.
With your commitment, we can help women and their families live longer, stronger lives. Thank you for your generous support.

I grew up with the scare of heart disease in my family. As a young child, I saw my grandmother and many of my aunts and uncles afflicted by this deadly disease. Thinking that nothing could be done about it, I carried around the fact that someday I would also be affected. Years later I saw the Red Dress symbol - it closely resembled one that I had sewn for my daughter. Researching it's meaning, I was surprised to learn that it stood for something near and dear to my heart! Since then, I have become passionate about passing along the American Heart Association's life saving mission to all my friends. This is why I choose to "Go Red."
Join Elizabeth and Make it Your Mission to help in the fight against heart disease in women.
