Love Your Heart!

Jane Merman, the Director for “Go Red For Women” Campaign has been with the Louisville Division of the American Heart Association for 12 years.  She is a graduate of Assumption High School and Bellarmine University where she earned her Business Administration degree.  After graduating from college, she was a Loaned Executive with Metro United Way. Her next position began at the American Heart Association in January of 2003.  Jane devoted three and half years working on the Heart Walk and then became the “Go Red For Women” Director in 2006.  Her role is focused on raising awareness of heart disease in women and raising lifesaving funds to reduce heart disease and stroke and improve heart health.

Heart disease is not just a man's disease. One out of three women die from a heart attack or stroke. Come learn some practical things that we can do to encourage prevention.

Everyone is encouraged to wear something RED to our annual kick-off breakfast on Thursday, January 29th, as well as bring along a colleague.
