Gilmore promotes heart health awareness

For the Monroe Journal

AMORY – Gilmore Memorial Regional Medical Center is celebrating National Heart Month in February with its annual “Lady in Red” luncheon at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 27, at River Birch Place in Amory.
Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women. According to the American Heart Association, more women die of heart disease than of all forms of cancer combined. This means mothers, sisters and friends are dying at the rate of one per minute. The event will feature local women modeling the latest spring fashions from retailers in Amory and Aberdeen.
Following the fashion show, the keynote speaker will be Dr. Megan Schroyer.
A heart healthy luncheon will be served at no cost to attendees. Each participant will also receive a thank you gift for their attendance. The event is scheduled for one hour.
Pre-registration is requested by Feb. 22, by dialing 256-6002.
