It’s that time of year again. Men and women from across Long Island will be
getting all of their red outfits and accessories ready for the American Heart Association’s 13th Go Red For Women Luncheon.

Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and No. 4 killers of Long Island women. For 
more than 10 years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together as part of the Go Red For Women movement. More than 650,000 women’s lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over. 

While 1-in-30 American women die of breast cancer, almost 1-in-3 will die from cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease causes approximately 1 death per minute among females in the US. If you are a woman or there is a woman in your life you care about, Raise Your Voice, we must not be silent. Tell every woman you
know that heart disease is our No. 1 killer.

Help stop the No.1 killer by attending the Long Island American Heart Association’s 13th Annual Luncheon at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury on Feb. 12, 2014. The 2014 American Heart Association Go Red For Women Luncheon is nationally sponsored by Macy’s. The North Shore LIJ Health System is the Cities Go Red Sponsor.

The luncheon combines a reception, silent auction, networking opportunities and moving Long Island female survivor stories. The Long Island Go Red For Women Luncheon will again feature educational breakout sessions presented by recognized 
and credentialed healthcare professionals, providing women with information, resources and hope to take action and live a longer, stronger life.

This year’s workshops include “Don't Miss a Beat: The Latest in Cardiology and 
Healthcare Transformation” by experts from the North Shore-LIJ Health System, “Tapping: a tool to help you change your life” by Mimi Toomey, Certified EFT Practitioner and “Comfort Food with a Heart Healthy Twist” by Michael Maroni, Executive Chef & Founder of Maroni Cuisine.

This year’s Luncheon will honor Carmelina Oliveria, President, Oliveria Contracting, Inc. and Karen Murray, President, VF Sportswear. The honorees are committed to raising support and creating awareness about heart disease and stroke especially, as it pertains to women. Stella Mendes, President, First National Bank of New York 
is chair of the luncheon and Dr. Jean Cacciabaudo, Chief of Cardiology at Southside Hospital and Dr. Stacey Rosen, V.P. Katz Institute For Women’s Health are the Medical Co-Chairs. Lauren Scala, Reporter for WNBC 4 New York will emcee the event. 

The American Heart Association Go Red For Women Luncheon is attended by both women and men from business, health, education, local and state government. Local media sponsors include, WBAB, WBLI and The Long Island Radio Group. Speak Up and take charge of your cardiovascular health by attending the 2014 Long Island American Heart Association Go Red For Women Luncheon on Thursday, February 12, 2014.
