American Heart Association COO – Field Operations to Ring The NASDAQ Stock Market Closing Bell
ADVISORY, Jan. 31, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) --
What: Joanne McLaughlin, COO - Field Operations of the American Heart Association, will preside over the closing bell. Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association's nationwide movement that celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together and wipe out heart disease. Thanks to the participation of millions of people across the country, the color red and the red dress have become linked with the ability all women have to improve their heart health and live stronger, longer lives. Sponsored nationally by Macy's and locally in New York City by the NYU Cardiovascular Institute, with additional support from the PacifiCare Foundation and Bayer Aspirin, Go Red For Women began in February 2004, and has since grown into a vibrant national movement as more women, men, celebrities, healthcare professionals and politicians embrace and elevate the cause of women and heart disease. The movement gives women tips and information on healthy eating, exercise and risk factor reduction, such as smoking cessation, weight maintenance, blood pressure control, and blood cholesterol management.
