(3/26/2010) — Webster Bank was an event sponsor for the American Heart Association's 2010 Westchester/Fairfield Fairfield Go Red For Women Luncheon and Learning Sessions.
The event was held March 25 at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich in Old Greenwich, Conn.
Ginger Siegel, senior vice president and director of business and professional Banking at Webster, introduced the event's keynote speaker Jean Chatzky, an award-winning journalist, best-selling author and financial editor for NBC's Today.
"The American Heart Association is dedicated to bringing the issue of women's heart disease front and center and to funding life-saving research and education programs for women and Webster is pleased to support this important work," Siegel said.
Go Red For Women® is the American Heart Association's national movement that captures the energy, passion and the spirit power of women to band together and speak out against the No. 1 killer of women in Connecticut and New York. One in three women suffers in silence, and almost one woman dies every minute of cardiovascular disease, which is largely preventable.
