COVENANT HEALTH PRESS RELEASE

Women across the South Plains are invited to grab their girlfriends and wear something red for The American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Luncheon. Learn how to fight the No. 1 killer of women Thursday, April 18 from 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at the Overton Hotel and Conference Center.
 
The event features complimentary health screenings and vendor exhibits starting at 9:30 a.m. Stick around for program and luncheon to hear physician-led discussions and breakout sessions including "Laughter Yoga" with Patty Freier, Covenant Health nurse research specialist.
 
The program and luncheon will begin at 11:30.  Dr. Carothers, cardiologist for Covenant Medical Group, will speak first about heart health, and Emory Austin will follow up with her presentation.
Emory Austin, internationally known for her presentations will be the luncheon's keynote speaker.  Austin will speak about how each woman, no matter what walk of life they have come from, can build on their experiences and strengths to build on life lessons.
 
This year's luncheon will also include an "Open your Heart" parade where local women who have suffered from heart disease will share their stories while modeling the latest in fashions from local places such as, J. Hoffman's, BC and Cardinal's. The men of Carpet Tech, a red table corporate sponsor, will be escorting the survivors down the catwalk.
 
There will also be a "purse-a-nality" silent auction. This is where businesses and women from the community donate purses filled with their favorite things to help raise money to educate women about heart disease.
 
The money raised from the luncheon goes to support awareness, education and research of heart disease in women. Tickets are $25 each.
 
If you are interested in taking part in Go Red activities or attending the Go Red for Women Luncheon, please call the American Heart Association at 806-445-1314.
