“There is nothing more powerful than knowing 80% of the time, heart disease is preventable. We can change the statistics surrounding women and heart disease together by putting our own hearts first. I can’t wait to join the Westchester Go Red for Women campaign and be a part of this mission with them,” said Dr. Steinbaum.

Steinbaum is an attending cardiologist, specializing in Prevention and Women and Heart Health. Prior to her position with Mount Sinai Heart, she was the Director of Women’s Heart Health at Northwell Lenox Hill for 12 years. She is the author of “Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum’s Heart Book: Every Woman’s Guide to a Heart Healthy Life,” teaching all women how to lead the healthiest lives by living from the heart and “Lower Your Blood Pressure Naturally,” with the editors of Prevention. She has been awarded a New York Times Super Doctor, a Castle and Connolly Top Doctor for Cardiovascular Disease and New York Magazine’s prestigious Best Doctors in the New York edition.
In addition to the keynote presentation by Steinbaum, the Go Red for Women Luncheon includes a health and wellness exposition, heart health breakout sessions, networking reception, and a PURSEonality auction featuring stylish handbags, wallets and more.

The American Heart Association states that more than 80% of coronary events in women may be prevented with simple lifestyle changes, but prevention is hindered by the fact that many women do not realize heart disease is their number one killer—more than all cancers combined. For 15 years, the Go Red for Women movement has worked to close this knowledge gap and provide women with tools, resources and inspiration to build a healthier life. Women can access free resources at www.goredforwomen.org.
Go Red for Women is sponsored nationally by CVS Health. Greenwich Hospital is the Signature Sponsor. White Plains Hospital is the local Check. Change. Control. sponsor. Local sponsors include Fujifilm, and media sponsors 100.7 WHUD, Examiner News, Westchester Magazine, Buzz Creators, Professional Women of Westchester, WAG Magazine, Westchester Business Journal, and Fairfield Business Journal.
Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
