Are you a Real Woman who's made a Real Change?

by Anne S. on Tuesday, October 15, 2013

The American Heart Association (AHA) is seeking nominations for its “Real Women. Real Change.” program, presented by UnitedHealthcare.

In conjunction with the 10th anniversary of its Go Red For Women campaign, the AHA will select 10 central Indiana women who have made positive changes to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle to represent the organization at select events in 2014.

The women of “Real Women. Real Change.” will serve as local ambassadors for Go Red For Women and its mission to educate women that heart disease is their No. 1 health threat and to empower them to take charge of their heart health. The women will participate in events including the Red Dress Dash and the Go Red For Women Celebration, and will be featured in local media efforts.

“Heart disease is a silent killer, but up to 80 percent of heart disease is preventable by making small changes to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle,” said Dan Krajnovich, CEO of UnitedHealthcare of Indiana and a member of the AHA’s Indianapolis board of directors. “UnitedHealthcare honors the real, everyday women in Indiana who are doing positive things for their heart health and the health of their families.”

Nominations can be made online through Nov. 30 at A committee comprised of Go Red For Women volunteers will select eight finalists, while two additional finalists will be determined by the public via an online vote.
