The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Baltimore team is hosting its inaugural Go Red Goes STEM event, aimed at empowering young women to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans through a career in the sciences.
Ø Who are we? Go Red for Women – the American Heart Association’s nationwide movement to end heart and stroke disease in women – works to empower women to improve their overall health and well-being. As a science-based organization, we know that to move the needle on important medical breakthroughs, we need more people making great contributions in the field of science, technology, engineering and math…and that means encouraging women taking a seat at the table! The AHA also wants to reach younger women and involve them in discussions around their heart health. Currently heart disease is the #1 killer of women, but with outreach to younger women we can change the course for these young ladies.
Ø What is Go Red Goes STEM? A day- long event to inspire girls to explore STEM outside the classroom and embrace being heart healthy. Participants will be exposed to some of Baltimore’s leading science, technology and engineering companies who will showcase their innovative work. This event will consist of speed mentoring, breakout sessions led by top STEM-related organizations, and opportunities to make lasting connections with companies and women leaders. Students will walk away knowing they can make an impact through a career in STEM!
Ø Who are we looking for? Female students from Baltimore area middle schools who want an introduction to the exciting fields of STEM research and work! We are specifically looking for girls interested in learning more about these fields who may not have access to the resources necessary to nurture this budding interest. Our goal is to positively influence careers in science, medicine, and technology by exposing students to leading researchers, employers, experts, mentors, and heroes!
