MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. (KTVI) - For yet another year, the American Heart Association is raising awareness of heart disease in women.
A lot of people do not know that 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke, every year. Many women are young and have no other health issues. Yet, they often die suddenly.
The Heart Association is getting ready for an annual event that includes free health screenings and seminars on lifestyle changes, including women putting themselves first.
Tomorrow on Friday, February 6, 2015, wear red and post pics on social media with #GoRedSTL.
