ASHLAND, Ky. –

women don’t always realize how different their hearts are – or what their
actual risk of developing heart disease is.
A special heart month program – You’ve Gotta Have Heart –
will address those differences and more. The program is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Monday, Feb. 13, at the Roy Collier F. Community Center in Inez, Ky.
The event kicks off with a free healthy heart screening,
sponsored by King’s Daughters and the Kentucky Heart Foundation. A heart
healthy lunch, catered by Four Seasons Catering will follow. Cardiologist Lynn
Preston, DO, will finish up the event with a special presentation on women and
their hearts, beginning at 12:15 p.m.
