Did you know that every year about 715,000 Americans have a heart attack?
Or how about this statistic: Almost 600,000 people die from heart disease each year—that’s one out of every four deaths.
In fact, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women.
That's why Canonsburg General Hospital and the Outpatient Care Center in Peters Township welcome you a heart-health event Friday.
Go Red! will feature free blood pressure readings, free foot screenings, healthy cooking demonstrations by Giant Eagle and The Market District, performances and tips by exercise professionals, nutrition counseling and more.
Sally Wiggin, of WTAE-TV, will be on hand at Canonsburg General Hospital to share with guests her personal experiences concerning heart health. She will be featured at 6 p.m.
Door prizes, raffle items and other fun activities await participants.
