Henry Ford Allegiance Cardiology specialist Cathy Glick has been selected by the American Heart Association to serve in the role of Chair of the Washtenaw County Heart Ball in 2017. The 2017 Metro Detroit Heart Ball will take place Oct. 13 at the Jack Roth Stadium Club at the University of Michigan. 

Glick has been very active with the American Heart Association in southeast Michigan, serving as a member of the Executive Leadership board in 2016. By serving as Metro Detroit Heart Ball Chair, Glick is in a prime position to further elevate awareness and understanding of family heart issues, and help raise funds for national research and programs. The Washtenaw County Heart Ball is the American Heart Association’s premiere fundraising campaign, with proceeds going directly to the AHA for cardiovascular research and heart health educational programs locally and nationwide. 

“Partnering for the Heart Ball is an opportunity to do my part in funding life-saving research and prevention programs in the mid-Michigan community,” Glick explained. “Last year, Heart Ball campaigns raised more than $71 million nation-wide, and I’m honored to do my part in Michigan.” 

“We are so honored to work alongside Cathy in such a leadership role this year,” said Katie Langston, Washtenaw Heart Ball Director. “Her passion for educating our community is paramount as we continue to provide the resources and tools to positively impact the lives of families in southeast Michigan.”

Usually, this just means Jim, one of our partners, uploaded the article. There's an off chance it could be an intern, though, so be nice.
