WellSpan Health’s Samantha Stover to chair 2024 York Go Red for Women Luncheon

Samantha Stover, RN, BSN, heart health program coordinator at WellSpan Health, will serve as the chairwoman of the 2024 York Go Red for Women® Luncheon.

Samantha Stover has worked with WellSpan Health for 11 years and spent nine of those working in the medical intensive care unit. She is also an adjunct clinical professor at York College. Sam is passionate about improving the health of her community and is currently pursuing her master’s in nursing in public and population health. Her career now focuses on the heart health of women who had hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and their lifelong follow up care. She hopes that encouraging women to take control of their health at such an important stage of their lives, will continue to empower many generations to come.

The Go Red for Women movement is a comprehensive platform designed more than two decades ago to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally. According to the American Heart Association, a global force for healthier lives for all, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in women, claiming more lives than all cancers combined. Nearly 45% of women over age 20 are living with some form of CVD[1]. Go Red for Women is a global movement with impact across the United States and in more than 50 countries around the world.

This year’s York Go Red for Women Luncheon will take place on Friday, June 14 at 10:30 a.m. at the Out Door Country Club, 1157 Detwiler Dr., York. For more information, visit heart.org/yorkpagored.

Go Red for Women is nationally sponsored by CVS Health. The York Go Red for Women Luncheon is presented locally by WellSpan Health with additional support from UPMC and UPMC Health Plan, Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of York, OSS Health, M&T Bank and other local companies.
