ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States.
It kills nearly half a million women each year at the rate of about one per minute.
That's why, each year, hundreds of people gather at the Lehigh Valley Go Red for Women Luncheon, which is right around the corner, on May 2nd at DeSales University.
To tell us more and to tell us how we're doing in the fight against heart disease in the Lehigh Valley, WFMZ's Eve Tannery welcomed Winnie Melinsky, Board President of the American Heart Association - Lehigh Valley, to 69 News at Sunrise along with Dr. Raymond Singer, Chief of Cardiothoraic Surgery at Lehigh Valley Health Network.
Local students are working with ArtsQuest to help select bands for Musikfest, and they announced their choices LIVE on 69 News at Sunrise!Read More »
