Heart disease is the nation's No. 1 killer and it impacts more women than men. More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. But the good news is that heart disease is 80% preventable by making small lifestyle changes.
Join WTHR and the American Heart Association for "Go Red for Women", a national campaign that brings awareness to heart disease and women. The Indianapolis Go Red for Women Celebration takes place on Friday, February 22nd, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the JW Marriott. This event includes seminars, lunch and free health screenings.
