Heels for Hearts event for women announced

Traditionally the month for lovers and all things heart related, February also reminds us to take care of our heart during American Heart Month.

Heart disease is the number one killer of women each year, taking more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Many women do not understand their risk or realize how heart disease looks and feels different in women. Recognizing the need for awareness and prevention, Cardiovascular Institute of the South (CIS) and Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) are proud to host the inaugural Heels for Hearts event on Thursday, February 6 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the 2nd floor Events Room of the Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center in Houma. This social is taking the place of the annual Love Your Heart luncheon.

The cardiac wellness social encourages women to get informed about their heart health. The event welcomes Ms. Sylvia Masters as emcee. The evening will include a Q&A session with a panel of physicians and wellness experts as well as a heart-healthy dinner, wine and signature cocktails, interactive games, door prizes and more.

Sylvia Masters is a Vandebilt Catholic High School graduate and received her bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication and Journalism from Nicholls State University. Currently, she is an evening anchor and reporter for KLFY News 10 in Lafayette covering news and events. Whether she’s on the desk or in the field, she credits her love for journalism by believing everyone has a story to share.

Tickets for this inaugural evening event are $25. To purchase tickets, please visit https://heelsforheartshouma.eventbrite.com.
