Raising Awareness about Women and Heart Disease
Elizabeth Bartz, President and CEO of State and Federal Communications, appears in the April 2012 issue of Akron Life magazine. The publication is featuring a special supplement honoring the American Heart Association’s ninth Go Red for Women campaign.
What is Go Red for Women, you ask?
According to their site, “Cardiovascular disease claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year, yet women were not paying attention. In fact, many even dismissed it as an ‘older man’s disease.’ To dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women – a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.”
Elizabeth Bartz is one of the Circle of Red Members – women who are leaders in their community, each offering resources, time, and influence to find a cure for heart disease. She is quoted, “I go red for my mom, my sisters, my daughter, my aunts, my cousins, and all of my friends.”
