The seventh annual Go REDding luncheon took place Friday afternoon.
Hundreds of women turned out at the Holiday Inn donned in red to learn more about the signs and symptoms of heart disease in women.
This year's keynote speaker was chief medical officer of Prime Healthcare Sunny Bhatia.
“I think the key is to better understand how important recognition of heart disease is in women, the concerning signs and symptoms, what questions to ask your physicians, what type of treatment are appropriate for you, what are the do's and don'ts in terms of managing your health as it relates to heart disease,” Bhatia said.
Bhatia says heart disease is often thought of as a man's disease, so it's important for women to know they can be at risk as well.
Studies show women put their health on hold for family and work.
So speakers stressed the importance of getting checked because they said if you're not healthy, you can't take care of your family.
