A variety of Deborah physicians – representing various specialties – will join with a host of other health professionals to provide health screenings to the more than 1,000 women expected to attend.
“Each year we work in conjunction with the American Heart Association’s Wear Red Day,” said Renee Bullock-Palmer, M.D., Director of the Women’s Heart Center. “We want to raise awareness about the need to fight heart disease in women.”
