The American Heart Association hosted the Central Valley Go Red For Women luncheon on March 4 to promote heart health awareness. Hundreds of women explored a health expo and beauty boutique, watched a cooking demonstration and participated in a nutritional Q&A session, ate a heart healthy lunch and watched a fashion show featuring local heart and stroke survivors.

Keynote speaker Dr. Teresa Daniele, a cardiologist at University Centers of Excellence, spoke about risk factors and symptoms of heart attack and stroke.

Heart attack survivor Drenda Montgomery, the director of surgical and cardiac services at Clovis Community Medical Center, also spoke about her heart episodes and how she at first ignored her symptoms.
