Ephraim McDowell Health Care Foundation raising awareness of heart disease

January 16, 2019 – Danville, Kentucky – To raise awareness of how women can reduce their risks for heart disease, the Ephraim McDowell Health Care Foundation is offering its eighth annual Happy Heart Luncheon on Thursday, February 7.  The luncheon will be at the Showroom, 2405 Lebanon Rd., Danville, and will begin at 11:30 a.m.

Happy Heart Luncheon

The Happy Heart Luncheon will offer a presentation on heart health by cardiologist Hussam Hamdalla, M.D., and the feature presentation by Corporal Matthew Bradford USMC (Ret.), the first blinded amputee to re-enlist in the Marine Corps.

Guests will receive a delicious lunch, catered by Wild Thyme, and will be entered into a drawing to win door prizes.

“With heart disease killing so many women each year, we want to do something fun but educational for our communities,” said Keith Bridges, MHA, vice president of Community Engagement and Population Health. “This event will be very informative and fun.”

Heart disease is the nation’s number one killer of women.  Nearly half a million women will lose their life to the disease this year – that’s approximately one death per minute. 

Tickets are limited to this exclusive event and must be purchased in advance.  Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased by calling (859) 239-2419 or by visitingwww.emhealth.org/foundation/happy-heart-luncheon
