December 6, 2014 – I was delighted to be a part of the Harlem Go Red for Women Educational Forum held at My Image Studios – MIST Harlem. I moderated the Media Panel which featured seasoned executives and personalities including:

  • Dr. Bob Lee (Host and Community Affairs Director, WBLS),
  • Toya Beasley (Host, Inspire U on Radio 103.9),
  • Dr. Kate Ferguson (Editor in Chief, Real Health Magazine).

Our Mistress of Ceremony for the day was Arthel Neville from Fox News. The “Dr. Muriel Petioni Harlem Star for Heart Award” was to Councilwoman Inez Dickens, Dr. Hemant Patel, and Make My Cake, LLC owner Aliyyah Baylor. The Forum was all about creating a culture of health in the Harlem community.Heart disease is not just a man’s disease. 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke and African American women are disproportionately affect… but it can be prevented. I’ve been volunteering for the Association for eight years and have served on their International Stroke Committee, New York State Advocacy Committee, Multicultural Leadership Committee, Harlem Go Red Committee and Social Media Subcommittee. I moderated the Media Panel for the Harlem Go Red event in December 2014.A precursor to the Harlem Go Red events, I produced and hosted the day-long Power New York City: Health & Empowerment Symposium on behalf of the American Heart Association in 2009. Held at Columbia University and tailored to the African-American community, it was a landmark event – one of their first focused specifically on wellness and prevention versus solely heart disease. With over 200 people in attendance, it offered inspirational talks, self-management tools, health screenings, and discussions on “total health” including healthy eating, mental health, oral health, skincare, disease management and prevention. The keynote speaker, Terrie M. Williams, spoke about the role of mental health in the total health equation. Watch the video.Find out more about Go Red for Women and the American Heart Association.
