Long Island Go Red For Women Luncheon
Go Red for Women is the American Heart Association?s national movement to make women aware of their risk for heart disease, the No. 1 cause of death among women, and take action to reduce their risk.
On February 13, 2013 at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, New York we will honor outstanding members of the community; Karin Caro, Founder & CEO, BluChip Marketing, Laura Palacios, Group Director-Investments, Vice President, Signature Securities and Emma Q. Li, Chairperson, A&Z Pharmaceutical Inc. This educational luncheon brings together over 900 of Long Island?s top business and community leaders. The goal of this event is to educate participants on heart disease and the benefits of prevention, lifestyle changes, and advocating for oneself. The event day begins with educational workshops led by Long Island?s top medical and health professionals. Continuing with networking, a formal program of keynote, honoree speakers and a survivor story. The objective of the day is to empower women and men with the tools to change their lives and prevent heart disease.
Nationwide, we invest over $132 million a year ($3.2 billion since 1949) in heart and stroke research that has led to recent breakthroughs such as clot-busting drugs and drug-eluting stents. Healthcare providers learn about medical advances and new treatment guidelines though our journals, conferences and online courses.
