Women's Health University-"Heart Health and Blood Pressure"

Thursday 11:30 am to 1:30 pm
Vinton War Memorial | 814 Washington Ave.

Heart disease is often called the “silent killer” because it arrives quietly, but you may not know that it affects women more than men. One contributing factor could be high-blood pressure, which can affect women during different stages of life, from childbearing years to the onset of menopause, when a woman’s risk for high -blood pressure goes up. If you are a woman (or simply care about one), join us to learn more about risks, symptoms and what lifestyle changes you can make to be heart healthy at any age.

Registration is required. Please call 540-266-6000 or 800-422-8482 by August 3 to register!
