Robin Mangarin-Scott, Dignity Health
Vice President of Strategic Marketing
Thank you for joining us at the 2017 Go Red for Women Luncheon. Just by being here, you are taking an important step in understanding your risk for heart disease and ways to prevent it.
I’d like for you to take a moment to think about the women in your life; your mother, daughter, sister, best friend, coworkers, the barista at your favorite coffee house, your neighbor. Think about the moments you spend with them and how important these relationships are. Now think about this. Approximately every 60 seconds a woman will die from heart disease. One of those women may be your mother, sister, best friend, you.
The fact is: Heart disease remains the No. 1 killer of women each year. But we can change that!
Knowledge is powerful medicine and Go Red for Women provides opportunities for women to learn the facts about heart disease, be advocates for change, inspire, and teach others how to live a heart healthy life.
As Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Communications for Dignity Health Central California, I see the devastating effects of heart disease in our hospitals every day. As a survivor, I understand the need for more research, advanced technologies, access to preventative healthcare, and education so that one day we may say we beat heart disease. As a friend, I’ve experienced the heartache of watching a loved one battling this deadly foe
So who is the woman you will fight for? Your mother, daughter, friend, neighbor, yourself? Join us in February at the Go Red for Women Luncheon and be a part of a sisterhood of women who fight with all their heart to ensure yours keeps beating healthy and strong.
