Attendees are encouraged to wear red as they experience a fun-filled Sunday afternoon event to learn more about heart health.
Marcia Hartwig, Perry’s Education and Training Center coordinator, said: “Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States. It is important for women of all ages to know what lifestyle changes are necessary to prevent heart disease.”
Dr. S. Das Pamnani, a Perry Memorial Family Health Clinic internal medicine physician, will share insights to live by, and there will be a number of surprises throughout the afternoon.
A heart-healthy brunch, complete with recipes, will be offered by the Park Avenue Café, sponsored by the Perry Memorial Foundation. The afternoon will conclude with Princeton’s local boutiques showcasing family spring fashions with a touch of red.
More than 400,000 lives are lost each year to heart disease. This is the same number of deaths per year as all forms of cancer, respiratory disease and diabetes combined.
