After nearly two years of personal activities, the American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to heart and brain health for all, has announced that in 2022, Go Red for Women® Luncheon will return to our community.
This year’s Go Red Lunch for Women, chaired by OpTech President and CEO Ronnie Cruz, aims to raise awareness of the cardiovascular disease that is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, and raise funds for cardiovascular rescue research for women. . The AHA encourages people to “get back on track,” which simply means regaining control of their mental and physical well-being after two difficult years of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This branded event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Feb. 25 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in New, Michigan. This year’s event will be hosted by Local 4 News reporter Mara MacDonald, and the keynote speaker will be Weight Watchers Group President and CEO Florin Mark. Other highlights of the program include music by Ben Sharkey and impressive stories of Metro Detroit surviving women.
“I am fortunate to support such an amazing cause and lead this year’s Go Red event.” Said Ronnie Cruze. “Like many others, I have personally experienced the devastating damage that heart disease inflicts on entire families. Go Red for women is very important to me because my mother suffered a stroke that deprived her of mobility last year. During a personal trip with my mother and other family members, I learned that many deaths caused by heart disease can be prevented through lifestyle changes, and it starts with information and education. I want to contribute to change the situation. “
Since 2004, Go Red for Women has had a profound impact on women’s health. As a trusted, passionate and relevant force in the elimination of heart disease and stroke, through the Go Red for Women movement, the American Heart Association remains steadfast and strives to meet the comprehensive needs of women’s health care – at every stage of life.
«The annual Detroit Go Red Luncheon AHA is a reputable platform to highlight awareness of prevention and individual risk reduction strategies, especially because most heart disease can be prevented. ” Says AHA volunteer and speaker at the luncheon, Dr. Nothing Sarin, a cardiologist who serves as the medical director of the Ascension Providence Women’s Cardiology Center in southeastern Michigan. “In this way, we can significantly affect heart disease in women, which for decades has been a major cause of death. Changing these statistics will happen with innovation, collaboration and initiative with enthusiasm. Let’s understand and make the changes that should take place. “
