Go Red for Women Day: Heart disease awareness

Listening to advice from your doctor, making positive lifestyle changes is key. "It's on the inside", said Parcell, who, as her regal sash implied, was the national Go Red "Real Women" ambassador for Wear Red Day 2018.

Gresham served as the keynote speaker for the event, which heart survivor Chevene Duncan-Herring coordinated.

FEMA Ending Food, Water Shipments To Puerto Rico, Official Says

Methodist Women's Hospital plans to hand out about 400 hats like they did previous year. "Medical research is so important too, because without all the medical breakthroughs that the heart association has made, I probably wouldn't be here standing here talking to you". Heart valve problems can lead to the heart not opening up enough to allow proper blood flow.
