Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) Wealth Management will partner with the American Heart Association (AHA) – Westchester and Fairfield Counties, to host the 14th annual Go Red Women’s Leadership event virtually on Friday, February 3 at 9:00 a.m. EST. 

The leadership event is part of Morgan Stanley’s long-standing support of the Go Red for Women® campaign, designed to celebrate the power and authentic voice of women as well as their influence and strength in numbers against a silent killer. “It’s an honor to once again harness the energy and passion of these incredible women (and men) in a unified mission to educate ourselves how to combat heart disease, the leading cause of death for women in the United States,” says Elizabeth Dennis, Managing Director and Head of Private Wealth Management at Morgan Stanley.

This year’s event features a “Heart-to-Heart” conversation with Emmy award-winning TV show host, actress, author, comedian, and TV personality – Sherri Shepherd. She will be interviewed by Sandra L. Richards, Head of Global Sports & Entertainment and Segment Sales & Engagement at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management.

Other highlights include four “Heart Talks” focused on tips to kickstart a healthier lifestyle led by experts in their fields: Kate Abate, Gerontologist, Olympian, and Founder of AdvoKate Longevity; Gabrielle Jammal, Tea Sommelier; Ashana, Crystal Bowl Artist, Teacher, and Sound Healer; and Ahkiel White, Vice President, Global Sports & Entertainment, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management.

“Cardiovascular disease causes one in three deaths each year, but the simple truth is that most cardiovascular diseases can still be prevented with education and healthy lifestyle changes,” says Amanda Palumbo, Executive Director, Westchester & Fairfield Counties at the American Heart Association. “We’re grateful for our relationship with Morgan Stanley and all they’ve done to help us fight for women’s lives.”

Founded in 1924, the American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary health organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of heart disease and stroke. To help prevent, treat, and defeat these diseases – America’s number one and number three killers – they fund cutting-edge research, conduct lifesaving public and professional educational programs, and advocate to protect public health.
