GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Cardiovascular disease is the Number 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. That’s a third of our mothers, sisters, friends, neighbors, coworkers and more and can affect women of any age. That’s why today women and men are gathering to go red for women at the annual Grand Rapids luncheon with the American Heart Association.

That’s where we find Morgan Poole, to learn about what’s happening today and how we can all stay heart healthy.
