"Heart disease continues to be the number one killer of women in the United States," said Eileen Howard Boone, Senior Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility and Philanthropy for CVS Caremark and President of the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust. "Through these efforts, we can engage our colleagues in taking action against heart disease while supporting our purpose of helping people on their path to better health in the communities where we live and work."
CVS Caremark has a long-standing relationship with the American Heart Association, by providing volunteers and financial support, including today's announcement of a $10,000 donation to support the 2014 Go Red Campaign.
