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 Twelfth 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, April 2, 2018 in the following two categories:

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

Nomination forms are available at or by calling 609.223.3729.

The award will be presented at the 16th Annual American Heart Association Garden State Go Red For Women Luncheon, locally sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb and media sponsors NJ Monthly, WCTC 1450 AM and Magic 98.3, on Friday, May 11, 2018 at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, 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 and CVS Health, 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.
