How Jo Ann is building a better working world

As a Northern New Jersey American Heart Association board member and Go Red for Women Heart Disease Survivor Ambassador, I am dedicated to driving awareness and research donations to improve heart health for women. Women are underrepresented in clinical trials, and their heart disease often remains undetected until it’s too late. In my personal life and work, I use my knowledge and experience to make the world a healthier place.
