2015 Tri-Cities Go Red For Women Luncheon

Local men and women, decked out in red, will learn more about their Number 1 Killer at this year’s Tri-Cities Go Red for Women Luncheon on Tuesday, April 28th, 2015. The American Heart Association’s annual fundraising luncheon brings light to heart disease which will claim the lives of 1 in 3 women.

The luncheon is part of the national Go Red for Women movement that encourages women to take charge of their heart health so they can live stronger, longer lives. The goal for the Go Red for Women Luncheon is to create awareness about heart disease, the number one killer of women, and also encourage individuals to take preventative actions and ultimately save more lives. In 2010, the American Heart Association set a strategic goal of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular disease and strokes by 20% while improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% by the year 2020. This event also strives to educate women on heart facts that concern them specifically.  More women than men are affected by heart disease. Sadly, most women don’t notice the symptoms of heart disease and stroke until it is too late.  Join the Go Red For Women movement to help raise awareness and save more lives.

The 2015 Tri-Cities Go Red for Women Luncheon will take place on Tuesday, April 28th, at MeadowView Conference Resort and Convention Center in Kingsport.  Registration begins at 9:00 am, with Breakout Sessions starting at 9:30 am followed by lunch from 11:45 am – 1:00 pm.  WJHL NewsChannel 11’s Anna Zook will serve as the emcee for the luncheon. Attendees will enjoy interactive and educational breakout sessions presented by Signature Sponsor, Mountain States Health Alliance and Breakout Sponsor, Food City.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to take a photo in the “Picture and a Promise” booth hosted by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, and hear an inspiring story of survival during lunch. For more information on attending the Go Red for Women Luncheon, please contact Joette Street at 423-416-7740 or Joette.Street@heart.org.

Go Red for Women is locally sponsored by Mountain States Health Alliance and Food City.
