Seeking Women of Distinction

Robbinsville, NJ...Throughout New Jersey, women are making extraordinary contributions to health, society and other women. These are women who manage families, build businesses, empower others, lead civic organizations, help neighbors or advocate for healthier, safer neighborhoods. And the American Heart Association wants to know about them.

The American Heart Association is currently accepting nominations for the Eleventh Annual American Heart Association Go Red For Women® “Woman of Distinction” Award. This award recognizes and celebrates New Jersey women promoting a healthy lifestyle for or among women, making sustained, unique or extraordinary efforts to improve the community as well as those who support and advance women’s issues or serve as a role model to others.

Nominations are being accepted until 5:00 pm on Friday, March 3, 2017 in the following two categories:

  • Business, Industry, Healthcare
  • Education, Non-Profit, Community, Civic, Other.

Nomination forms are available at http://GardenStateGoRedLuncheon.Heart.org or by calling 609.223.3792.

The award will be presented at the 15th Annual American Heart Association Garden State Go Red For Women Luncheon, locally sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb, Omnicom Group and RWJBarnabas, on Friday, May 19, 2017 at the Westin Princeton at Forrestal Village in Princeton, NJ. The luncheon is a cornerstone piece of the American Heart Association Go Red For Women movement, which is a national initiative committed to improving cardiovascular health among women. Nationally sponsored by Macy’s, Go Red For Women believes that every woman has a reason to live a healthier, longer life and empowers women—and men—to take charge of their heart health.

The Go Red For Women Luncheon raises funds to support this lifesaving movement, supporting cutting-edge research, community programs and professional education focused on cardiovascular health.
