Various community leaders will be recognized next week when the American Heart Association hosts the fifth annual Queens Go Red for Women Dinner.

The dinner, scheduled for Tuesday from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Terrace on the Park in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, will bring together community and business leaders on the issue of heart health.

This year’s dinner will honor Dr. Chong Park, chief of the Division of Cardiology at New York Hospital, among others.

Dr. Diane M. Sixsmith, chairwoman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at New York Hospital, will also have the honor of chairing the dinner.

The Queens Go Red for Women Committee is made up of community and business leaders who have dedicated their efforts to raising awareness and funs for the Go Red for Women movement.

Macy’s and Merck nationally sponsor the 2012 American Heart Association Queens Go Red for Women Dinner. Local media sponsors include Long Island Radio Group, News Corp. and the Queens Courier.
