MALVERN >> March of Dimes announced the three individuals who will be honored in the fields of health, business, and public service at its 2018 Chester County Salute to Women of Achievement.

The Chester County Salute to Women of Achievement event is celebrating its 29th Year of honoring women who live or work in Chester County. This year’s honorees are Susan Boardman from the Downingtown STEM Academy, JoAnn Magnatta from Main Line Health and Dana Heiman from the Brandywine Health Foundation. The official announcement of the honorees occurred last Wednesday during an event held at AVE in Malvern.

The three were nominated by their peers for their commitment to community through volunteer service and excellence in their fields. Heiman was selected in the health field, Susan Boardman received public service and JoAnn Magnatta received the business field nomination.

Heiman, who is the senior vice president at the Brandywine Health Foundation in Coatesville City, has served a number of roles in the nonprofit sector for more than 25 years. She leads the Foundation’s annual grantmaking process and oversees a committee of 14 board and community members.

Boardman, the internships and partnerships leader at the Downingtown STEM Academy in Downingtown Borough, helps the students as they seek work-related experiences in their desired fields through an internship. She coordinates with the community and builds business relationships to help the students obtain their internship.

According to the Downingtown Area School District website, Boardman developed strong alliances within the business community through extensive involvement working with the Business Education Partnership at the Exton Chamber of Commerce; Youth Leadership Committee at the Chester County Chamber of Commerce; Leadership Council of the American Red Cross and the STEM Advisory Board.

Magnatta, who has been Main Line Health’s senior vice president of Facilities Design and Construction/Real Estate since 2001, oversees the design, construction, and maintenance of four acute care hospitals, a rehab hospital, a drug and alcohol treatment facility, and several outpatient sites, according to the Main Line Health website. She began her health care career in 1988 at the Medical College of Pennsylvania.

March of Dimes fights for the health of all moms and babies and supports research, leads programs and provides education and advocacy to enable a healthy start, according to its website.

The event dinner, sponsored by WSFS Bank, will take place on Oct. 17 at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square in Delaware County. For more information, or to purchase a ticket, contact Katelyn Lloyd atklloyd@marchofdimes.org.
