Sorority Partners with Tom Joyner Morning Show, “Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day”
Each year more than 250,000 women in the U.S. die of heart attacks, many not knowing the ways women’s symptoms differ from men. Forty percent (40%) of heart attack victims die before they reach the hospital.
The members of Nu Iota Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Ivy Tea Rose, Inc. want to empower the community through education so we can become better advocates for women’s heart health. They will once again partner with the TJMS- “Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day”. Nu Iota Omega’s focus this year is to support the American Heart Association’s- “Handbag and Hearts” campaign. The campaign encourages women to carry aspirins in their purses to use in the event you are suffering from a heart attack. The sorority will also be giving away small handbags with aspirins and information about heart attacks enclosed. Ivy Tea Rose Inc. is sponsoring live Zumba Classes throughout the day.
Come out to learn more about heart disease prevention. The event will be held on Saturday, September 28, 2013 from 10 am to 2 pm. Location: Barnett Park, W. Colonial Drive, Orlando, Florida.
