The American Heart Association held its annual Go Red for Women Luncheon on February 2, 2018 at the Ritz Carlton in St. Louis. The Go Red for Women Luncheon is designed to increase awareness and raise fund for research to prevent heart disease and stroke in women. This year’s luncheon was sponsored by nationally by Macy’s and CVS Health, and locally by BJC HealthCare and the Centene Charitable Foundation.

Guests sported their best red attire to network and enjoy coffee, tea, snacks and a silent auction before heading into the main ballroom. The lunch time program featured a heart-to-heart conversation with Jasime Huda, KTVI anchor, and Dr. Mary Mason, Chief Medical Office of the Specialty Companies at Centene Corporation. This year’s event was chaired by Cynthia Brinkley, President and COO of Centene and Deb Hollingsworth, retired VP External Affairs at AT&T.
