The award recognizes individuals and groups that foster initiatives to promote and improve the general health and well-being of all.
This is the sixth year that the award will be bestowed.
The event is hosted by Griffin Hospital’s Women and Heart Disease Committee, which consists of healthcare professionals, heart patients and women from throughout the Valley communities.
The primary focus of the group is to increase heart disease awareness among women, empower them to love and save their hearts, and ensure they are provided the means to do so through education and rehabilitation. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease kills nearly twice as many women in the United States as all types of cancer.
Event registration and a silent auction will start at 5 p.m., followed promptly at 6 p.m. by dinner and the awards program.
Tickets for the dinner are $35; the event is open to the public.
Proceeds benefit the Women and Heart Disease Fund, which supports heart wellness programs for women in the Valley.
Reservations are due by Jan 30. To make a reservation or for information, call 203.732.7584 or 203.732.1137.
