Cardiovascular diseases kill nearly 1 in 3 women each year. That's about one woman every 80 seconds but the good news is that 80% of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable through lifestyle changes and education. Through community events like this one, we can educate people about their risk for heart disease and stroke, encourage them to share their knowledge with loved ones, and work together to save lives.

More stats here.


The Wellness Expo will include health screenings, fitness tips, fun games, a photo booth, music, silent auction and more.

  • Luncheon Program includes an honest, heart-healthy conversation between three Saint Thomas Health physicians: Dr. Kelly Davis, Cardiologist; Dr. Amy Neff, Primary Care Physician; and Dr. Connie Graves, OBGYN
  • Compelling and impactful survivor story.
  • Interviews available from campaign chairs, survivor(s), panelists/medical experts
