Go Red for Women
More than 300 women participated in the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Educational Forum and Luncheon last month at the MassMutual Center. The event promoted awareness of women’s heart health, as almost twice as many women in the U.S. die each year of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases as from all cancers combined.
