Wear Red Luncheon raises heart health awareness

DANVILLE — With February being Women’s Heart Month, the annual Wear Red Luncheon hosted by IU Health West Hospital and Hendricks County Senior Services was held Wednesday at the Hendricks County Senior Center.
Those who attended the luncheon left with plenty of useful information to keep them heart healthy for the future.
The luncheon kicked off with education on hands-only CPR from Josh Halon, director of Cardiac and Pulmonary Services at IU Health West. Those who attended were offered the chance to practice the life-saving technique on mannequins, which clicked when the appropriate amount of pressure was being applied.
The keynote speaker was Ziad Jaradate, M.D., an interventional cardiologist with IU Health Physicians Cardiology. 
Jaradate spoke about risk factors of heart disease, symptoms of a heart attack, and more, then fielded questions from the audience.
The luncheon sponsors were American Senior Communities, Danville Auto Service & Tire, Inc., and North Salem State Bank.
