Brief:
The annual Go Red for Women Capitol event will be taking place on Thursday in the Capitol rotunda. For the last several years, legislators have partnered with the American Heart Association to help raise awareness about the risk of heart disease and to promote heart health among women.

Thursday’s event will feature remarks from legislators as well as from a heart disease survivor who will share her personal story.

There will be opportunities for photos and to speak with legislators, survivors and advocates for heart health.
