Joel Schlessinger recently donated to the 2012 Omaha Go Red For Women Expo. This event, sponsored by the Methodist Health System, was created to dispel the myths and raise awareness about heart disease, the number one killer of women. This event provides emotional, passionate and social initiatives to empower area women to take charge of their health.
Joel Schlessinger donated a gift certificate for a BOTOX or Dysport treatment for the silent auction. All money that the silent auction accumulates will go toward education resources on heart disease and women’s health.
Past funds donated have impacted women in the following ways:
- Over 2 million women have taken the Go Red Heart CheckUp to assess their personal risk of developing heart disease
- Over 200,000 healthcare providers have received crucial information about their patients risk of heart disease
- Over 900,000 women have joined the Go Red For Women Expo to receive information that will help improve their health.
As a board certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, Joel Schlessinger knows how important it is to ensure that your heart is healthy. He supports this cause and finds it to be a pertinent part of all women’s health.
The 2012 Omaha Go Red For Women Expo will take place on September 18 at the Embassy Suites in LaVista. To donate to this cause, visit their website here.
