American Heart Association COO – Field Operations to Ring The NASDAQ Stock Market Closing Bell


    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.
