The Westchester-Fairfield American Heart Association will hold a Go Red For Women Luncheon on June 2 at the Hilton Westchester at 699 Westchester Ave. in Rye Brook.
Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, and 64 percent of women who die suddenly of coronary heart disease have no previous symptoms.
The Go Red for Women campaign is a national initiative that supports increased gender-focused medical research and advocates for women’s health policies in local and federal government. The event aims to increase awareness while raising funds for the Go Red For Women cause.
The Friday event, to be held from from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will include a morning health and wellness exhibition, education sessions presented by Greenwich Hospital and Stamford Health, and a luncheon program and keynote speech by Mara Schiavocampo, an ABC News correspondent and author.
Go Red For Women is sponsored nationally by Macy’s and locally by signature sponsor Stamford Health. Other sponsors include Greenwich Hospital, Morgan Stanley, NewYork-Presbyterian, Fuji Film, White Plains Hospital, Buzz Creators, Healthcare News, Professional Women of Westchester, WHUD, Westchester Magazine and ABC7.
Tickets and event information are available online.
The Westchester-Fairfield chapter of the American Heart Association is based in Norwalk.
