Go Red for Women Luncheon

As a wife, sister, daughter, and colleague, Doreen Griffith understands firsthand “how caring for yourself is often last on your to-do list.” No wonder cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States.

But as the community volunteer chair of the 2021-2022 Dallas Go Red for Women movement, Griffith wants to see priorities change.

“I know we can take the message of self-care and prevention to even more women than ever this year,” said Griffith, who is the Dallas managing partner of Grant Thornton.

The movement will celebrate local achievements during the 2022 Dallas Go Red for Women Luncheon at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 25 at Omni Dallas. Visit heart.org/dallasgored.
