DES MOINES, Iowa, August 2, 2023 — Jill Greiner, managing director – investments for Johnson & Greiner Financial Consulting Group of Wells Fargo Advisors, will serve as the community volunteer chairperson of the 2023 Des Moines Go Red for Women® movement.

Go Red for Women is an initiative of the American Heart Association – devoted to a world of healthier lives for all – designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women locally, nationally and globally.

“I was inspired to chair Go Red for Women this year because I know firsthand how the work of the American Heart Association impacts our lives,” Greiner said. “I look forward to working together to advance this important mission and supporting women in Des Moines and beyond.”

Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States, claiming more lives each year than all forms of cancer combined. Heart disease and stroke continue to be the greatest health threat for the women of Des Moines. According to City Health Dashboard, cardiovascular disease accounted for approximately 377 deaths in 2020.

“We are thrilled to have Jill’s experience, conviction and passion to help drive Go Red in Des Moines,” said Karen Rieck, vice president of human resources at Farm Bureau Financial Services and chairperson of the Greater Des Moines Board of Directors. “Together, we know that we will have a positive impact on the lives of women in our community and the families that depend on them.”

This year’s Go Red for Women movement and its local achievements will be celebrated Thursday, Sept. 21, at the 2023 Go Red for Women Event. The event will be held at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown.

Go Red for Women is nationally sponsored by CVS Health and the Des Moines Go Red for Women Event is locally sponsored by Johnson & Greiner Financial Consulting Group of Wells Fargo Advisors. For more information, contact Lindsey Good at or visit
