ne woman every minute! That’s the rate
at which heart disease claims the lives of
women across the country. Heart disease
continues to be the No. 1 killer of women,
causing 1 in deaths each year.
The good news is that more women are becoming better educated
about this deadly disease. They are learning the facts about how differ-
ent this disease can be for men and women and how to take steps to
address their risk for heart attack.
Events like Go Red For Women help women come together with
their friends and join in the fight. Please join us for the 2015 Go Red for
Women Luncheon on Feb. .
Breakout sessions will take place from 10:5 to 11:15 a.m. They will
feature health professionals who will give you steps to take today for
better heart health. They promise to be educational as well as fun!
Comedienne Leslie Norris Townsend will provide the keynote ad-
dress. The event will also include a “Purseonality” purse silent auction
and exhibit booths.
This is the ninth year for Shannon to sponsor the luncheon, which
encourages women to learn about their personal risk for heart disease
and to take action to reduce their risk. Rudy Haddad, MD, Shannon
Clinic cardiologist, will speak during the event.
“Heart disease affects women of all ages, and even a woman who
considers herself perfectly healthy can suddenly find herself experienc-
ing symptoms,” says Dr. Haddad. “It’s important that women of all ages
take a serious look at their risk and learn the steps they can take to keep
their hearts healthy.”

Exercise is good
for arthritis. But if
you have more joint
pain two hours after
exercising than before
you started, you’ve
overdone it. Ease up at
your next workout.
