Heart Truth for Women Celebration Feb. 23

Edited from a Press Release

Huntington, WV, (HNN)  - - Ebenezer Medical Outreach, Inc. and St. Mary’s Medical Center will be sponsoring The Heart Truth for Women Class on Thursday, February 23rd at 5:30 p.m. in Room 303, 1448 Tenth Ave. Many women think heart disease is a man’s disease.  Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States.  One in four women in the United States will die of heart disease, while one in 30 will die of breast cancer.  Twenty-three percent of women will die within one year after having a heart attack.  Women need to know what to do to prevent heart disease.

 

By learning about personal risk factors and making healthy choices women can greatly reduce their risk of developing heart-related problems.  Even if they already have heart disease they can take steps to lessen its severity. In this class you will learn what heart disease is; what tests can help protect your heart health; what your risk is for heart disease; and what you can do to prevent heart disease.  Grab a friend and bring her to Ebenezer Medical Outreach, Inc. at the Douglass Centre and learn The Heart Truth for Women.

 

The class is free and open to the public.  Seating is limited to the first 25 women who enroll.  Please call 304.529.0753 ext 111 to sign up for the class.  Refreshments will be served.
