The Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce and St. Joseph Mercy Health System will host a Go Red For Women Event on February 13.
The event is in conjunction with the American Heart Association’s national campaign asking America to go RED in celebration of the 11th Annual National Wear Red Day on February 7.
For 11 years, women have been fighting heart disease – the No. 1 killer of women – both individually and together as part of the Go Red For Women movement. The campaign’s mission is to raise awareness about women’s heart health by providing information and education in order to prevent and eventually end heart disease. Renowned Michigan Heart Cardiologist G. Alfred Dodds III, MD will discuss risk factors for women, early detection and prevention.
Following a heart healthy lunch, breakout sessions including yoga, Zumba and nutrition will be offered. Attendees are encouraged to wear red.
“It is crucial for women to understand their risk factors and common symptoms of heart disease and to help spread the word throughout their communities,” said Pamela McConeghy, President and CEO of the Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce. “We are thrilled to partner with St. Joseph Mercy Health System and the American Heart Association for this important event. We are working hard to make it a great experience packed with information, inspiration and fellowship shared in the beautiful setting at Oak Pointe.”
This event will take place on Thursday, February 13 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Oak Pointe Country Club in Brighton.
It is open to Chamber members and the general public. The cost is $20 for members and $25 for non-members. For more information or to RSVP, please contact the Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce at 810.227.5086. Deadline to RSVP is February 6.
