The American Heart Association wants to help everyone live longer, healthier lives so they can enjoy all of life’s precious moments. And we know that starts with taking care of your health. American Heart Month is February and has been since 1964. Although Heart Disease and Stroke has no color or religious distinction, African-Americans and Latinos are on the higher end of the statistics for a variety of reasons but for the most part our lifestyle, our diet and lack of physical activity, has led to deadly results: Stroke, heart attack, heart disease, hypertension, heart failure, and diabetes, which can contribute to major factors as cause of deaths among these minority groups.
On February 3, 2017 Chere Goode, the recharge strategist, hosted a “Go Red Day Party” at the RL Hotel in Downtown Baltimore. This event was about bringing people and organizations together to get everyone to focus on trying to save lives and start the conversation about the seriousness of heart health. ” Having lost my father at a young age because of heart issues, it became my mission to help educate the community about heart health” says Chere Goode.
The health movement doesn’t stop here for Chere. Up next is the Annual event “Let’s Get Serious” where there is not just a discussion on health, but cooking healthy expo, exercise expo, nutrition expo, and of course a wonderful networking event. So far, to date, 500 attendees have already registered for this event and you as well still have time to register for the 7th Annual Event. Don’t miss it!
