Leading diagnostic provider raises awareness for heart health at Greater Phoenix luncheon
TEMPE, Ariz. (Feb. 26, 2018) – On Friday, Feb. 23, 2018, Sonora Quest Laboratories, Arizona’s leading provider of diagnostic information services, showed their support and continued sponsorship for the 13th Annual Go Red for Women Luncheon in Greater Phoenix.
The annual Go Red for Women campaign is an emotional, empowering social initiative that raises awareness about the No. 1 killer of women: heart disease. Approximately one woman will lose her life to cardiovascular disease every 80 seconds. The luncheon hosted by the American Heart Association spoke to the 80 percent of cardiac events that may be prevented through proper education and lifestyle changes.
Christina Noble, Chief Growth Officer, Sonora Quest laboratories, proudly serves on the executive leadership board of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Phoenix chapter. “It’s important that we educate women of all ages so that they are able to be informed about cardiovascular disease. Many women are unaware of their risk and we want these women to feel empowered to act for themselves,” said Noble. “Go Red’s mission is not only personal to me, but it aligns with our mission at Sonora Quest Laboratories in that we aim to lead the conversation about managing your own health.”
As Sonora Quest Laboratories continues to pioneer the movement of healthcare education and empowerment, their support of Go Red furthers the company’s objective to focus on wellness in 2018, improving health and providing innovative, affordable costumer solutions.
