Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action.

Join us for our National Wear Red Day Luncheon on February 2 at Loft 212 where we will have a healthy eating expo and free health screenings followed by a gourmet luncheon, inspiring survivor story and interactive doctor’s panel.

Wear red and encourage others to do the same while taking the time to Know Your Numbers. Five numbers all women should know to take control of their heart health are: Total Cholesterol, HDL (good) Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI). Knowing these numbers can help women and their healthcare provider determine their risk for developing cardiovascular disease.

The National Wear Red Day Luncheon will be held on Friday, February 2 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at Loft 212 (212 4th Street SW, Cullman, AL 35055). Tickets are $20 per person or $150 for a table of 8.
