It’s time to be demanding when it comes to women’s heart health and ask others to do the same. That’s why the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women – nationally sponsored by Macy’s and CVS Health – has launched the Go Red Commitment – to encourage women to put themselves first, make a commitment, and take action for women’s heart health. Join the American Heart Association to unite with your coworkers, friends and neighbors to make that commitment and further the fight against heart disease in the Miami Valley at the 11th annual Dayton Go Red for Women Luncheon on Thursday, May 3, 2018 from 10 am to 1 pm at the Sinclair Ponitz Center, 444 W. Third Street, Dayton.
Luncheon guests will have the opportunity to participate in health screenings and to interact with healthcare professionals about such topics as blood pressure, cholesterol, fitness, nutrition and stroke prevention. The event, which will be co-emceed by Julia Palazzo of WDTN-TV and Kim Faris of B94.5, will also feature actress and comedian, Kim Coles, best known for her role on the ground-braking television series, “Living Single.” Coles will combine comedy and inspiration to empower luncheon guests to discover their own true “gifts” so they may share them with the world.
“By making a Go Red Commitment, women everywhere, and the men who love them, are coming together to fight their no. 1 killer, heart disease,” said Bob Blommel, First Vice President at Merrill Lynch and the chair of this year’s Go Red for Women campaign. “I know that when we come together, we can build a culture of health for everyone in the Miami Valley and put an end to heart disease and stroke.”
