American Heart Association Seeks Heart-Healthy Woman For Go Red Total Makeover
American Heart Association Seeks Heart-Healthy Woman For Go Red Total Makeover

44 million women in the U.S. are affected by heart disease and stroke and each of them have a story to tell. Join ABC10’s Dina Kupfer at The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement as she emcees the Go Red Total Makeover on Saturday, February 6 at Arden Fair from 10am to 2pm. The event will spotlight one local heart-healthy woman who is in the process of making herself over from the inside out.

Nominees should be a female resident within the community or surrounding area and have taken action to improve her heart health.  The heart-healthy makeover recipient will receive a $500 Macy’s gift card at the Go Red Total Makeover event, and additionally, will participate in local media and in-studio interviews.

Nominations may be submitted to Go Red For Women® from January 11 to January 24 by sending an email directly to goredtotalmakeover-sacramento@heart.org or by filling out the online nomination form. Self-nominations are accepted.

Dr. Diane Sobkowicz, board president for the American Heart Association’s Sacramento division and director of the women’s heart program at Sutter Heart & Vascular Institute says “The Go Red Total Makeover is an exciting new initiative that not only spotlights success in becoming heart-healthy but also has the potential to save even more lives through onsite education and inspiring action by scheduling a Well-Woman Visit today.”

A single Well-Woman Visit can give a head-to-heart-to-toe view of a woman’s overall health. The visit is a scheduled prevention check-up to review a woman’s overall health so her doctor can measure blood pressure, check cholesterol and look for signs of heart disease, stroke and other illnesses.

Each Go Red Total Makeover attendee will receive an event passport to be stamped at heart-healthy stations in Arden Fair’s center court, offering access to medical experts, heart-healthy tips on physical activity and nutrition, and more. Attendees will also be treated to a fashion show featuring fashions by Macy’s with local survivors, doctors and nurses serving as the models. A completed event passport, or one receiving all of the Go Red Total Makeover event’s station stamps, will qualify its holder to be entered into a drawing for a $250 Macy’s gift card.
