American Heart Association Go Red Girlfriend Health Symposium
Saturday, June 25, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Please join American Heart Association for a health and wellness conference. The Go Red Girlfriend Health Symposium will empower, educate and equip African-American women to live heart healthy lives. The conference includes free health screenings, education sessions, interactive cooking demonstration, physical activity sessions, and a networking heart healthy lunch. In addition, attendees will hear from medical experts, heart disease and stroke survivors, and learn about initiatives to improve the health of the Houston community.
The Go Red Girlfriend Health Symposium is a Go Red for Women event. One in three women die from heart disease and stroke each year. That’s approximately one women every minute! 80 percent of strokes and heart attacks are preventable by adopting the AHA’s Life’s Simple 7, which is getting active, eating better, losing weight, stop smoking, controlling cholesterol, managing blood pressure and reducing blood sugar. The AHA’S Go Red For Women ® Movement is nationally sponsored by Macy’s. Please dress comfortably and remember to wear red!
