At the upcoming Sept. 25 Ladies Night Out Program, the topic will be cardiovascular disease with Dr. Kit Helm as the guest speaker.
Cardiovascular disease, also called heart disease, generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain or stroke. Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States and is also a major cause of disability.
Ladies Night Out is a partnership between Macon County Public Health and Angel Medical Center to provide free monthly programs on a variety of health topics for women with an emphasis on the importance of regular health screenings. The Franklin Bi-Lo and Fatz of Franklin are corporate sponsors of the programs and provide snacks and door prizes each month. These programs are held the fourth Tuesday of each month in the cafeteria at AMC.
This program will be held twice on Sept. 25; one will be at 4 p.m. and one at 6:30 p.m. The same presentation will be given at both meetings.
