    Congratulations to Elizabeth Elting and Jessica Eker, co-chairs of the Go Red for Women event in NYC on March 5. This American Heart Association, patient advocacy and women’s wellness event was a huge success in raising a record amount of funds to help put an end to heart disease and stroke.

    Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women, especially over 50. Through Go Red, women are empowered to take charge of their health by learning their family history, knowing their numbers and understanding the warning signs and risk factors.

    The event was great reminder for all women and, of course, men to not put their health last, but to keep it high up their list of priorities. The main sponsors included Macys, CVS Health, Northwell Health, the Elizabeth Elting Foundation and Mount Sinai Heart.
