While nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented, cardiovascular diseases continue to be a woman’s greatest health threat, claiming the lives of 1 in 3 women. That's why The American Heart Association, in partnership with OhioHealth and CVS Pharmacy, held Richland County's first ever Go Red For Women event on May 22 at Deluxe Catering & Events. 

Attendees and vendors participated in a health expo to kick things off, followed by a heart-healthy buffet lunch, a breathing exercise with Julie Braumberger of Mind Body Align and finally a panel featuring Thrive Reporter Emily Dech with Dr. Jennifer Dickerson and Dr. Sharon Roble of OhioHealth Mansfield.
