Ladies In Red

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, and the American Heart Association wants that to stop. The organization is sharing its message of prevention through outreach events like its Go Red for Women Luncheon, which has been educating Inland Northwest women and their families on heart health for a decade now. During this year’s event, attendees will learn how to combat stress through laughter during a presentation from motivational speaker Kay Frances, and also hear survivor stories from several local women. Attendees can also choose to participate in two of four brief educational workshops being offered.

“Go Red was created to create awareness for women’s heart health because 9.1 million women die of heart disease each year,” says Heidi Hershly, the American Heart Association’s Inland Northwest chapter director. “That is more deaths than all forms of cancer, malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis combined.”
