Cincy Chic: How long have you been with the American Heart Association?
Amy Lang, Go Red For Women Director: 
Three years

 

Cincy Chic: Why are you so passionate about heart health?
Lang: 
I am so passionate about heart health because of all the inspiring women I have met since I have been working on this campaign. I've met mothers of children born with heart defects, women who've lost their own mothers to the disease and women who have fought the disease themselves. Being the number one killer of women, heart disease kills more women than the next leading causes of death combined. As women, we need to do what we can to take care of our hearts and to spread the Go Red message to those we love.

 

Cincy Chic: What are some important things women need to keep in mind about their heart?
Lang:
The message of the American Heart Association is that small steps can bring big changes in heart health. Certainly, we cannot control our heredity, but there are some proactive steps we can all do. We call them “Life's Simple Seven.” They are: know your numbers; visit your doctor to get your blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood sugar tested. The other four are things we probably already know, but we need to do: stop smoking, eat better, exercise and lose weight. Do these steps and you are on your way to a healthy heart!

 

Cincy Chic: What are some things on the American Heart Association’s horizon you’re excited about?
Lang:
The Go Red For Women Luncheon on May 5!

 

Cincy Chic: Tell me more about the Go Red for Women Luncheon! What will be new this year? How can people register?
Lang:
This year's luncheon will be our biggest event to date. Once again, it will be held at the Duke Energy Convention Center from 9a.m.-1:30p.m. We'll start with free health screenings, boutique shopping and heart healthy exhibits. Following this are breakout sessions and the luncheon program.

 

Our keynote speaker is Ginger Zimmerman who is an international speaker and heart transplant survivor. Then the event will close with the UC DAAP students red dress fashion show! All the women in the fashion show are heart disease survivors. It should be a great event.

 

I'd like to mention that it wouldn't be possible without the support of our City Goes Red sponsor, The Christ Hospital. They are so instrumental in bringing the Go Red message to women all year long. We also welcome a new sponsor, John Freida Hair Care who will be doing our fashion show model's hair this year.

 

If you would like tickets for the luncheon, call the AHA at (513) 842-8877. Click on the video below to learn more about the Go Red for Women Luncheon!
