Heart disease is the number one killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. In fact, it claims more lives than all forms of cancer combined – taking one mother, daughter, sister or friend every minute.

While there are many similarities in the symptoms of heart disease in men and women, there are even more differences – differences that could save, or end, a life. The annual Go Red for Women Luncheon was designed to help address such issues and focuses on heightening awareness of heart disease, creating a passionate call to action and generating funds for education and research targeting women.

The 2015 SWFL Go Red for Women Luncheon Co-Chairs are Brittany Cohill and Dr. Shona Velamakanni. Cause Sponsors are Arthrex and Lee Memorial Health System:
