Join Go Red! & RoleMommy for a Real Moms Roundtable


Go Red For Women presents the Real Moms Roundtable on June 10th in Greenwich

Real Talk with Traci E. Alexander will focus on real stories, real issues and real life

Car pools, meetings, work, family commitments, household responsibilities, social events and community activities. All of these and more fill the "to do" lists of moms throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties. Life keeps getting busier and because women are often the busiest members of the family, they often put their own health needs on the back burner. The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement encourages every mom to take some time out for herself and feel good about doing it.

For a very special treat, the Go Red For Women movement in Westchester and Fairfield Counties presents the Real Moms Roundtable. Moderated by award-winning journalist, communications specialist and mother of two Traci E. Alexander, the Real Moms Roundtable will be held from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on Thursday, June 10th at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich in Old Greenwich, CT. Ladies, grab your girlfriends and be a part of this timely conversation with other remarkable moms like you! No topic is off limits. The Real Moms Roundtable will cover family, careers, relationships and health issues. Basically, our distinguished panel will cover everything from the boardroom to the bedroom and everything in between. Alexander will lead the panel through Real Talk on such topics as "Real Mom Spotlights: How Does She Do It?", "Real Mom-tras: Common Mom-sense & Words to Thrive By" and "Real Mom Confessions--the Good, the Bad & the Excuses." Reservations are required and may be made by calling Alissa Maglaras at 914-640-3275 or emailing her at Alissa.Maglaras@heart.org. Please RSVP by June 7th.

Our dynamic panel includes Terry Starr and Bradi Nathan, co-founders of MYWorkButterfly.com, Beth Feldman, founder ofRoleMommy.com, Michelle Crecca, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Webster Bank, Martha Bryce, an inspirational mother living with heart disease, and Dr. Janet Taylor, psychiatrist, Lluminari expert and contributor on NBC's "Today." Moderator Traci E. Alexander is the Founder and President of Mz. Mom, LLC, a network for professional women. Mz. Mom, LLC is the place where working women can share their adventures as they strive to strike a balance between career and motherhood.

Go Red For Women® is the American Heart Association's national movement that captures the energy, passion and the spirit power of women to band together and speak out against a silent killer. Designed to celebrate the power and authentic voice of women, their influence and strength in numbers, Go Red For Women is gaining momentum as more and more leaders are lending their voice to the American Heart Association's call for action and change.

Too many women die each year because they are unaware that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women in Connecticut and New York State. One in three women suffers in silence, and almost one woman dies every minute of this largely preventable disease. Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association's solution to save women's lives. With its "Speak Up to Save Lives" call-to-action, Go Red encourages everyone to bring a voice to this silent killer of women.

You can choose to speak up for others by adding your dynamic voice to the American Heart Association's call for action and change. You can listen to what your heart is telling you, support the Go Red movement and spread the word to your friends and your community about making the right personal choices and taking heart-healthy, live-saving action. You can make a dramatic statement by joining us at the Real Moms Roundtable at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich on June 10th. You will connect and network with peers, hear inspiring stories from incredible working moms, learn essential skills to juggle all that's on your plate and find happiness, fulfillment and peace of mind in all of your roles. Sometimes, "Going Red" is all about taking time out for you and feeling good about it.
Go Red For Women, powered by the American Heart Association's research, educates and connects millions of women of all ages. www.GoRedForWomen.org is the number one online destination where women can learn how to make heart-healthy choices every day. Research shows that women who "Go Red" are more likely to make healthy choices.

Go Red For Women is sponsored nationally by Macy's and Merck and locally by Stamford Hospital. Media Sponsors include 4 New York, Telemundo 47, MyWorkButterfly.com and WHUD-FM. Sun Products Corporation is the Real Women's Series Sponsor.
