Jones, clad head-to-toe in bright red (including a fabulous pair of red shoes), explains that she wears the color all throughout February as part of the Go Red for Women campaign, which is an American Heart Association (AHA) initiative to raise awareness of heart disease in women.

"Chautauqua County has among the highest rates of heart attack and stroke deaths in New York State", DeAngelo said.

Throughout the month, VCU Health will offer other events, including a Heart Health in Women Symposium on February 4, and three free VCU Health seminar series talks at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Its faculty is known for expertise in acute cardiac care, and the center is a national leader in device-based treatments for advanced heart failure.

While many lifestyle choices and medical conditions can put you at risk for heart disease, the big three are high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, and smoking.




VCU Health Pauley Heart Center services include inpatient and outpatient care ranging from noninvasive cardiology to heart transplantation. However, the science is clear there are psychological and environmental factors that also increase risk for heart disease. That's one in every four USA deaths annually.
