Christine Kisiel is the executive director of The American Heart Association. She has a passion for improving the heart and brain health of the Mohawk Valley. Christine believes that the American Heart Association is a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
Christine was asked into the closet to shine a light on how women can be empowered in being given the tools and resources to decrease their chances of heart disease or stroke. We also discuss how having your mental health as a priority, and decreasing anxiety and stress greatly reduces women’s chances of having heart-related illnesses.
Lastly, Christine shares all the details on the American Heart Associations’ annual fundraising Go Red campaign event that is taking place this year on June 9th.
Go Red for Women provides a platform for women and their families to lead healthier lives and drive collective action for community transformation. It’s not just about wearing red; it’s not just about sharing heart health facts. It’s about:
– Providing women with opportunities to prioritize and take charge of their own health;
– Building communities that support and provide access to healthy choices;
– Demanding equal access to healthcare for all women and their families;
– Increasing women in STEM in upcoming generations.
