AccruePartners, along with over 500 other attendees gathered today at the Hilton Charlotte Center City for this year’s 9th Annual Go Red for Women Luncheon. The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women is the world’s largest network of women standing together to save women’s lives from heart disease.
Heart disease is no match for the power of women’s voices. Most women don’t notice the symptoms of heart disease until it’s too late. That’s why heart disease has been called the silent killer. Millions of women have united to raise awareness because “it’s not just a men’s disease.” Inspired by so many survivors and their stories today, AccruePartners is very proud to be a sponsor yet again this year!
Each year, one in three women dies of heart disease and stroke and 80% percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Thanks to the tools and resources provided by the American Heart Association, our team has had one-on-one hands-only CPR training and our office now has a defibrillator in our lobby for easy access should an emergency arise.
