We are pleased to announce that Bennett Maggio with Abbott is the winner of the inaugural Austin Woman of Impact campaign. She and her four fellow nominees spent 8 weeks raising awareness about women’s heart health, and funds that will make a lasting impact on the health of the Austin community.
Heart disease has had a profound impact on Bennett’s life. In 2008 her father suffered a catastrophic heart attack during her freshman year of college at the age of 51. Soon after, she lost her father-in-law from a stroke at 57. She decided to dedicate her life to improving the health and well-being of others and has since become a strong supporter of the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women campaign. Congrats, Bennett!
