Heart Disease is not just a “man’s disease.” It is the leading cause of death in women and responsible for more deaths than all forms of cancer combined. Catholic Health will be sponsoring a free women’s health education program entitled, “Heart Health for Women,” on Wednesday, February 9 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room at the OLV Senior Neighborhood located at 55 Melroy Avenue in Lackawanna.
Even though most people associate heart disease with men, it is a growing women’s health concern. Ginny Lyons, RN, women’s health specialist, will provide a female-focused overview of the risks, signs, symptoms and current treatment options for heart disease.
All area women are invited. If you would like to learn what you can do to keep your heart healthy, plan on attending this free women’s health program. For more information, or to register, call Catholic Health’s HealthConnection at 447-6205 or register online at chsbuffalo.
