3rd Annual MedTech Holiday Philanthropic Event: WINTERFEST
December 10, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC-8
DeviceAlliance is proud to present our 3rd annual philanthropic event: WINTERFEST
Join DeviceAlliance as we celebrate the close of 2019 with a memorable giving experience with an evening event benefiting the American Heart Association (AHA) of Orange County.
Innovation in healthcare is driven by the passion to help patients live longer, healthier and more productive lives. Winterfest is bringing the focus back to the reason why innovation matters – the patient.
Help support heart disease and stroke research by joining DeviceAlliance for an evening of delicious food, delectable wine, raffles, and bid on amazing packages during our live auction! 100% of proceeds from this event will be donated to AHA.
The six cardiologists who founded the American Heart Association in 1924 would be amazed. From humble beginnings, the AHA has grown into the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. A shared focus on cardiovascular health unites more than 33 million volunteers and supporters.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. AHA wants to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. AHA has invested more than $4.1 billion in research, including funding the work of 14 Nobel Prize winners. The Mission – to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
Spotlight Story: Meet Max Page
