Heart to heart

Ladies, it’s time once again to get to the heart of the matter: Heart disease kills more women annually than all cancers combined. Yet it draws less attention than the perhaps the better-marketed breast cancer. The solution: Enlighten and energize yourself at the American Heart Association’s 15th annual Fairfield-Westchester Go Red for Women Luncheon this Friday, June 1 at the Hilton Westchester. From 9 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., there are learning sessions followed by networking, an auction and the luncheon from 11:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Belinda S. Miles, president of Westchester Community College in Valhalla, will deliver the keynote address at the event, which is sponsored in part by WAG.

The lunch is always an opportunity to educate yourself while painting the town red, so to speak. For reservations online, visit westfairgoredluncheon.heart.org. Otherwise contact Jennifer Miller at 914-806-0962 or jennifer.miller@heart.org.

There’s more heart health news to be had at the Heart Health Weekend Aug. 4 and 5 at the Renaissance Westchester in Harrison. Curtis Cord, founding editor of Olive Oil Times, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, yoga teacher Brett Bonnist and naturopathic physician Carinne Bonnist will be on to talk mindfulness, meditation, the Mediterranean diet and other things that can help preserve heart health.
