Leading health and nutrition authority, Joy Bauer, has been announced as the keynote speaker for the American Heart Association’s TriCounty Go Red for Women Luncheon. The luncheon is set for Thursday, October 30th at West Hills Country Club, 121 Golf Links Road, Middletown, NY.
As the nutrition and health expert for NBC’s TODAY show, Joy shares reliable, practical, and straightforward advice that helps millions of Americans eat better and lead healthier, more fulfilling lives. She also hosts the program’s popular “Joy Fit Club” series, which celebrates determined people who have lost more than 100 pounds through diet and exercise alone and recently debuted in the new PBS special, Joy Bauer’s Food Remedies.
Bauer is also a monthly columnist for Woman’s Day magazine and a #1 New York Times bestselling author with 11 books published. She is the nutritionist for the New York City Ballet and wide range of celebrity clients and Olympic athletes.
Passionate about delivering scientifically sound health information, Bauer received the 2010 National Media Excellence Award from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the 2012 American Society of Nutrition Science Media Award.
“We know Joy strongly believes that it’s never too early or late to reap the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, and so does the American Heart Association,” said Deborah Marshall, Vice President of Public Relations, Marketing & Strategic Planning at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, and chair of the 2014 TriCounty Go Red for Women campaign and luncheon, “We know she will inspire women in our audience to start, or continue, their healthy journey.”
The luncheon is part of the AHA’s campaign to raise awareness among women and provide them with tools to reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke - the number one and four causes of death among women. The half-day wellness event includes morning educational breakout sessions, an interactive heart check-up and silent auction. Funds raised support the AHA’s awareness programs and research.
Heart disease and stroke claim the lives of one in three women -- about 432,000 lives each year, or nearly one death each minute. More women than men die from heart disease and stroke.
The Go Red For Women Luncheon is sponsored nationally by Macy’s and presented locally by the Signature Sponsor, Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, Bon Secours Charity Health System. Local sponsors include Active International, Nice Pak/PDI and media sponsor WHUD radio.
