Every year, more African-American women die from heart disease than breast cancer, stroke and lung cancer combined.

In response, St. Agnes Hospital & St. Mark’s Institutional Baptist Church are partnering to offer women the Heart to Heart program designed to help members of the community take action to reduce their risk for heart disease.

Heart to Heart is designed to raise awareness and provide needed tools, support and education to guide women to healthier lives. The program includes heart risk screenings and a four-month program of health education, fitness and healthy lifestyle classes.

The program commences 10 a.m., June 28, at St. Mark’s Institutional Baptist Church, 655 N. Bentalou Street in Baltimore.
