FORT WASHINGTON, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nutrisystem, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTRI), a leading provider of weight management products and services including Nutrisystem® and South Beach Diet® brands, announced today that it is a sponsor of the American Heart Association Go Red for Women Campaign in Philadelphia for the fourth consecutive year, acting this year as a Crystal Sponsor. Additionally, Nutrisystem, Inc. CEO and former Go Red for Women Campaign Chair, Dawn Zier, is serving as a member of the Go Red for Women Executive Leadership Team, a committee of Philadelphia based executives committed to raising awareness for heart disease and stroke.
“It’s been a pleasure to continue our partnership with the American Heart Association Go Red for Women Campaign,” said Dawn Zier. “Raising awareness for heart disease and stroke, especially in women, is such an important cause and it’s my hope that we will continue to make a difference in educating people about the risk factors of heart disease and stroke, and the solutions available to decrease the risks.”
“We are so proud of our longstanding partnership with Nutrisystem and CEO, Dawn Zier,” said Jennifer Davis, Senior Vice President/Executive Director of the American Heart Association, Greater Philadelphia. “Each year, the Go Red for Women initiative grows stronger and stronger and that’s in large part to sponsors like Nutrisystem. We are truly appreciative of all they’ve done to help us spread the Go Red message.”
Go Red For Women is a part of the American Heart Association’s efforts to rid all Americans of heart disease and stroke. Go Red inspires women to take control of their heart health by further exploring their family history, their numbers and by listening and taking care of their bodies. Fundraising efforts support innovation and research in Philadelphia, and throughout the nation.
To further support the mission of the AHA, Nutrisystem, Inc. also partnered with the organization this past February to train more than 100 of its employees in hands-only CPR.
