Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for women in the U.S.—it kills approximately one woman every 80 seconds. The good news? Eighty percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. On Feb. 16 at Wyndham Gettysburg, community members from southern York and Adams counties went “red” for women’s heart health at the American Heart Association’s 10th annual Adams-Hanover Go Red for Women Luncheon. The event was sponsored by UPMC Pinnacle Hanover. The annual luncheon encourages women of all ages to become champions of heart health. Guests enjoyed a heart-healthy meal, educational and inspirational speakers who provided women with the tools and resources they need to reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke, a silent and live auction, plus other fun activities.

heart disease, visit www.heart.org or www.hanoverhospital.org.
