North End Waterfront Health is hosting a “Circle of Red” women’s heart health event on Thursday, February 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event, which is sponsored by the American Heart Association and Massachusetts General Hospital, will include heart health screenings, games and prizes, heart healthy snacks, and a health information table – all for free.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the United States. In fact, more women than men die each year from heart attacks. One in four women die from heart disease every year, while one in 30 women die from breast cancer. Women may have different symptoms than men and are often not aware that they are having a heart attack.
Anyone is welcome to stop by the health center at 332 Hanover St. between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday. The table will be set up on the first floor. See you there!
