The American Heart Association’s River Valley Go Red for Women will host its annual campaign online this year. Go Red for Women helps educate and empower women in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
Chairwoman Dawn Watts, CEO of Encompass Health in Fort Smith, will lead the event. Guest speaker will be Danyelle Musselman, a stroke survivor and wife of the University of Arkansas head basketball coach, Eric Musselman. Also present will be top leaders in the healthcare and consumer products industries, survivors of cardiovascular issues and stroke, and American Heart Association staff and volunteers.
Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. Death in women has decreased more than 30% over the past 10 years, but the fight is far from over. The community can get involved by supporting Go Red for Women through advocating, fundraising and sharing. To help boost these efforts and improve the health of women in Arkansas, the association is asking that all women make plans to attend.
The virtual event will be held via Zoom webinar on Thursday, Oct. 22 at noon. Participants may purchase virtual tickets at RiverValleyGoRed.heart.org.
The American Heart Association’s River Valley Go Red for Women movement is nationally sponsored by CVS Health. Presenting sponsor will be Baptist Health, local sponsors are Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Encompass Health, and media sponsors are KFSM-TV 5NEWS, iHeart radio of Fort Smith, the Times Record and The Fort Report.
