go-red-for-women-logoThe “Go Red” luncheon took place Friday at the Staley Museum. It’s the first time Decatur has hosted the event.

The event featured lunch and cocktails and a presentation from Dr. Karen Larimer of DePaul Univeristy.

Dr. Larimer is the President of the American Heart Association’s Chicago Board of Directors. She has worked with dozens of non profits on community health education.

Go Red For Women® celebrates the energy, passion and power of women to band together raise our voice, and wipe out heart disease and stroke. Heart disease takes the life of 1 in 3 women each year, making it by far the #1 killer of women.

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women is the world’s largest network that exist to save women’s lives from heart disease. Millions of women have united to raise their voices about their No. 1 killer.
