| 28/02/2012

(CNS): As many women fail to make the connection between risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and their personal risk of developing heart disease this year’s Cayman Heart Fund Learn and Live Red Dress Luncheon will focus on those risks. Dr Michael Ozner, Director of the Center for Prevention and Wellness, Baptist Health South Florida the best-selling author of “Miami Mediterranean Diet” will be the featured speaker. His topic is “A Six-Week Cardiac Makeover for a Lifetime of Optimal Health”. Given that heart disease kills more people in the Cayman Islands than any other and is the number one health threat for women this makeover could be a life saver.

The Cayman Islands Heart Truth® Champions will provide heart health materials, blood pressure, waist circumference, and body mass index screening as well nutrition and dietary advice. The Women’s Heart Care Expo will open at 10:30am until luncheon begins at 12:30pm.
