From the Heels for Hearts Facebook Page: Heart disease is the number one killer of women each year, taking more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Yet, many women do not understand their risk or realize how heart disease looks and feels different in women.
Cardiovascular Institute of the South and Lafayette General Health understand the importance of awareness, prevention and education for women and heart disease. That’s why we are proud to host the inaugural Heels for Hearts event on Thursday, September 12 at Warehouse 535 in Lafayette from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
The educational social encourages women to get informed about their heart health. The evening will include a Q&A session with a panel of physicians and wellness experts as well as a heart-healthy dinner, wine and signature cocktails, interactive games, door prizes and so much more.
A portion of the proceeds from Heels for Hearts will benefit Faith House, a domestic violence crisis center and shelter based in Lafayette. Faith House of Acadiana provides a safe haven for women affected by abuse across seven parishes throughout Central and South Louisiana.
With your support, we believe that great things can happen. We hope you join us in making the first Heels for Hearts event a memorable one. We’d like to thank our amazing sponsors for their support Lafayette General Health and Grace Home Health Grace Hospice & Palliative Care!
