Welcome to the Lancaster Go Red For Women Website! We’re delighted you want to learn how you can advance health, stop heart disease and save women’s lives. That’s what Go Red For Women is all about.
Heart disease isn’t just a man’s problem. It’s a woman’s problem, too. In fact, it’s women’s No. 1 killer. And, tragically, far too few women realize their risk from this often-preventable disease. We need to raise women’s awareness, to protect our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and other loved ones. And ourselves.
You can help, starting today. Here’s how:
First, take charge of your own heart health. Visit your doctor. Know your numbers (learn more at goredforwomen.org). You can improve your blood pressure, cholesterol and other numbers by making lifestyle changes. You’ll be healthier and look and feel better, too.
Second, speak up. Help spread the word that heart disease is women’s No. 1 killer. You can make a difference. Choose to share what you learn today with your family and members of your community.
Third and last, consider making a contribution. Your donation will help fund local and national Go Red activities to support awareness, research, education and community programs to benefit women.
Please don’t leave today without committing to make a difference. Join the Go Red For Women movement — women need your help. There’s so much to do, and so much at stake. Only one in five women believes that heart disease is her greatest health threat. Reducing risk and preventing heart disease starts with education — and you.
By working together, we can help women and their families live longer, stronger lives. Thank you for your generous support.
Chief Executive Officer
American Heart Association
Andrea has a Master of Business Administration and nearly 30 years experience as a professional manager/director. She has the ability to direct complex projects from concept to fully operational status. She is a very goal-oriented individual with strong leadership capabilities. She is also organized, highly motivated, and detail-directed problem solver. She also has proven her abilities to work in unison with staff, physicians, patients and families.
A note from Andi:
My involvement with the American Heart Association began 16 years ago. I decided to support them through volunteerism because my father died of heart disease at a young age. I also have been the Executive Vice President of the Board of Directors at United Disabilities Services since 2003 and have served on the Board of Directors for the American Heart Association. This year, in addition to co-chairing Go Red For Women, I participated in the AHA Heart Walk as the role of Company Leader. I really am enjoying a new level of involvement with the organization.
Karen has been an RN for 38 years with a concentration in cardiovascular nursing. Currently, she is Manager of Non Invasive Cardiology at Lancaster General Hospital. Her experience includes acute coronary care, cardiac cath lab, and worksite wellness coordinator for a health insurance company. She is also a member of the advisory board of Eastern Mennonite University, RN to BSN program, Lancaster Campus. She has worked primarily in hospitals in New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania. She is currently working on a Masters in Nursing at Walden University.
A note from Karen: I have spoken to various women’s groups over the years about cardiovascular health and continue to do so. I am very excited to be involved in this capacity for the Go Red for Women Movement. My husband, Greg is a minister, and I have two married sons and four grandchildren. I enjoy healthy cooking, reading, meeting new people, and spending time with my family.
