Every 60 seconds a woman dies of heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women. Yet too few women recognize heart disease as their leading health threat. The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement provides women with knowledge so that they can take positive action to reduce their risks of heart disease and stroke and protect their health.

WHAT: The 2010 Go Red For Women Luncheon is an educational program that encourages women to become champions of heart health. This year’s luncheon theme is “Changes of Heart” to capitalize on the change of date and location for the annual event. Proceeds from the event will benefit: women and heart disease research, educational materials and community programs for women, and educational programs for health professionals and their patients about women and heart disease.

Keynote Speaker: Tracey Conway, “Drop DEAD Gorgeous,” an Emmy-award-winning actress and comedienne, Tracey Conway will share her story of survival after suffering a near-fatal heart incident at age 38.

Locally sponsored by International Game Technology (IGT) and Renown Regional Medical Center and EMPLOYERS.
