State Rep. Doreen Carter (D-Lithonia) will host the third annual Women’s Go Red Luncheon on Friday, Feb. 2, noon to 2 p.m., room 216 of the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta.

The Women’s Go Red Luncheon will provide women with an opportunity to learn about cardiovascular health and the dangers of heart disease. The luncheon will take place during the American Heart Association’s “National Wear Red Day.”

According to the American Heart Association, an estimated 44 million women in the U.S. are affected by cardiovascular diseases while 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke. Additionally, an estimated 49 percent of African-American women over the age of 20 have some form of heart disease.

“The most important step towards a steadier and longer-beating heart is educating yourself on heart-healthy habits,” said Carter, a heart attack survivor. “Wear Red Day serves as important reminder to women, myself included, to take care of our hearts through lifestyle choices and daily self-care. Remember to wear red this February 2nd for women’s cardiovascular health awareness, and please join me for our Women’s Go Red Luncheon at the Capitol.”
