On Wednesday, Feb. 27, the American Heart Association is hosting its annual Go Red for Women Conference & Luncheon. The gathering serves as the cornerstone of the Go Red For Women campaign and provides Alaska women with heart-healthy tips through a series of presentations and health screenings, as well as demonstrations by dietitians, cardiologists and keynote luncheon speaker Chef Dr. Mike The Food Shaman.
It is important to share information and prevention tips, because cardiovascular disease claims a woman’s life every 80 seconds. Support Go Red for Women by sponsoring, volunteering, donating or purchasing a table at this year’s event.
