About 25 women attended a presentation by Nancy Gazca of the American Heart Association. Mz. Gazca spoke about her family’s history with heart disease and provided invaluable tips about preventing heart disease and strokes and about general heart health for women and African-Americans.


The American Heart Association offers tons of resources relating to physical activity, nutrition, weight and stress management, smoking cessation, and consumption of fats and oils. Learn more here.
