The Ohio Personal Injury Attorneys with the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy say estimates from the American Heart Association (AHA) show that as many as 32,000 women across the state of Ohio will die each year as the result of Heart Disease or a stroke. That is roughly 1 in 3 women in the state, making these adverse health conditions the leading cause of death among women in Ohio and across the United States.
In an effort to raise awareness about this problem, the AHA is observing the “Go Red For Women” campaign today. The organization is asking that everyone help bring attention to the dangers of heart disease, stroke, and heart attack by wearing red throughout the day.
Events associated with the program will be taking place throughout the greater Cleveland, Ohio, area as well. For instance, there will be an opportunity to meet a local heart transplant survivor to hear her story and ask questions regarding the procedure and her case. Also, the Cleveland office of the AHA will also be accepting volunteers for upcoming events.
The attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy support Cleveland’s organizations that give back to the community and encourage citizens to stay informed about what the firm is doing to assist others who are in need by visiting our Facebook page or regularly checking out the Community Involvement section of our website.
