The American Heart Association’s Annual Go Red for Women Health Expo & Luncheon brings attention to the threat of heart disease to women as well as creates a call to action for all women to commit to living a heart-healthy lifestyle.
This event is designed to create an inspirational and informative atmosphere, which will encourage women and men to become champions of health.
During the health expo, all luncheon guests will have the opportunity to participate in health screenings, learn about research, browse our silent auction and receive information and give-a-ways from our partners.
Guests will hear heartwarming and real life experiences from different women and how heart disease has changed their lives. Go Red For Women celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together and wipe out heart disease.
