Go Red for Women!
One in three. That’s the price women pay for cardiovascular disease. 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.
A woman you know and love may be affected by cardiovascular diseases — at any age. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, claiming more lives each year than all forms of cancer combined. By making a commitment to stand with the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement — women every- where are coming together to take action to end heart disease and stroke in women.
Join the Go Red for Women Experience luncheon on November 8 at the Lexington Convention Center.
Healthiest Place to Live
According to a new study conducted by SmartAsset, Fayette County is one of the healthiest places to live, ranking third in Kentucky. The study is based on metrics such as length of life, health behaviors, and access to health care. The county has a vast majority of primary care physicians per 100,000 residents (124), which places it No. 1 in the state. It also had favorable low scores for adult smokers (18.8%) and obesity (28.1%).
