Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year - more than all cancers combined. The American Heart Association’s annual Go Red for Women event is designed to raise funds for research and education and promote public awareness of this largely-preventable problem.
Hundreds of Sioux Falls area heart and stroke survivors, physicians, and business and community leaders celebrated Heart Month at this year’s Go Red luncheon on February 16th at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. The program featured a social hour, a silent auction, and a keynote from Melissa Johnson, founder of Oh My Cupcakes! In Sioux Falls. Event attendees also heard from other survivors and experts on ways to identify and lower their risk for heart disease and stroke.
MED was once again a proud member of the Circle of Red sponsorship team and MED’s Steffanie Liston-Holtrop will co-chair next year’s event.
