DETROIT, Michigan, April 10, 2023 – The American Heart Association, a global force for healthier lives for all, has announced Jaymi Wilson of Gentherm as chairperson for the 2023 Detroit STEM Goes Red event. STEM Goes Red is the American Heart Association’s initiative to empower female students in grades 9-12 to consider STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) related fields. Some of these students will become our next cardiologists, researchers, and scientists who can help end heart disease.

Wilson is the Senior Vice President & General Manager, North America Automotive and Global Marketing & Sales at Gentherm.

“Our goals are to engage women and mentors, increase the number of women pursuing STEM degrees in higher education, close the gender gap in STEM jobs and arm students with tools and resources to experience good health and well-being,” Wilson said.

On April 26, the Detroit STEM Goes Red experience will give local high school female students the opportunity to come together and share in the exciting world of STEM through hands-on activities, panel discussions and mentoring with industry leaders.

As a science-based organization, the American Heart Association recognizes the need to grow engagement in STEM disciplines to make life-saving breakthroughs in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

STEM Goes Red can change the impact of heart disease by inspiring young women and successful female leaders to create a platform for positive change as it relates to innovation, technology, health and wellness in women. The

STEM community in Detroit has an opportunity to elevate tomorrow’s female leaders to drive groundbreaking innovation.
