With heart disease being the #1 killer of women, and the lack of women leading and participating in cardiovascular research, the American Heart Association recognizes the need to inspire young women to help address this critical health and research disparity.
STEM Goes Red is a new, year-round engagement program which gives 30+ high school girls the opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering, and math outside the classroom. Through a series of events, the young women will connect with leading female researchers and media executives, learn about the latest trends in science and media, and see how they can make an impact through a career in STEM as researchers, doctors, engineers, and storytellers.
Become a Mentor
As part of the program, the women are invited to learn from mentors and gain a hands-on experience of what it means to pursue a career in the field of STEM. This could be anything from grabbing a quick coffee to a half-day job shadowing opportunity. If you are interested in being a mentor, please fill out this brief survey.

Enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year is now closed. If you would like to apply to be added to the waitlist, contact Senior Director Laura Baker at 213.291.7051 or Laura.Baker@heart.org.
