Saint Joseph Mount Sterling Hosts - Heart Health Lunch and Learn Event
Mount Sterling, Ky.— As part of the national effort to increase awareness of cardiovascular disease in women, Saint Joseph Mount Sterling, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host a Go Red for Women Lunch & Learn event on Friday, March 8 at noon at Clay Community Center in Mount Sterling.
The free event will feature Danielle King, M.D., who will present “Your Guide to a Healthy Heart,” a keynote addressing women’s heart health—including heart attack signs and symptoms, risk factors and tips for prevention. Complimentary lunch will also be provided.
Heart disease is the number one killer of women, but only 1 in 5 American women believe that heart disease is her greatest health threat. A staggering 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. Cardiovascular disease accounts for over 30 percent of Kentucky’s deaths in recent years.
Additional information on the benefits of nutrition and exercise, as well as, diabetes prevention and management will also be available. This is a “Go Red for Women” event held in partnership with the American Heart Association, but men are invited to participate as well.
