MedicAlert Foundation Joins the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women To Fight Heart Disease and Stroke

TURLOCK, Calif., Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In a move to inform and improve the safety and well-being of individuals living with cardiovascular disease and stroke, MedicAlert Foundation, a leader in emergency medical information services, has joined the American Heart

Association (AHA), a national voluntary health agency whose mission is: "Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke."

The American Heart Association and MedicAlert share common priorities and interests in reaching women and other key constituents with important messages and lifesaving services. While Go Red For Women is focused on educating women and others who are most at risk about the prevention and treatment of heart disease and stroke, MedicAlert is focused on the provision of emergency medical information services for individuals living with heart disease and stroke.

"MedicAlert is proud to join forces with Go Red For Women to raise awareness of women's No. 1 killer - heart disease. MedicAlert's lifesaving service offerings will empower individuals living with cardiovascular disease and stroke, by facilitating instant access to vital medical records in emergencies," said Martin Kabat, President and Chief Executive Officer of the MedicAlert Foundation.

"Our new collaboration with MedicAlert enhances our communication and offers our constituents the necessary tools that not only address patient safety, but also improve the overall health of the communities and the nation we serve" said Jennifer H. Mieres, M.D., Go Red For Women spokeswoman and director of Nuclear Cardiology at New York University.
