Free Presentation on Women’s Heart Health

Posted on May 4th, 2012

Monday, May 7, at 5:30 pm – Come hear the story of a heart disease survivor.

Ms. Alethea Chapman of Covington will speak at the Newton County Health Department on Hazelbrand Road in Covington on Monday May 7, 2012 at 5:30 pm. Chapman is one of 31 women in the state of Georgia – all heart disease survivors – trained as a leader to educate, advocate, and support her community on the issue of women and heart disease – the nation’s leading cause of death for women.

Chapman recently became a WomenHeart Champion after graduating from the prestigious Strengthening the Heart of Georgia program, a state based initiative based on the nationally renowned WomenHeart Science & Leadership Symposium at Mayo Clinic.

“I am thrilled and honored to represent this very important campaign to fight heart disease in women,” said WomenHeart Champion Chapman. “I look forward to getting started right here in Covington with a WomenHeart Support Network for women living with heart disease – educating the community and supporting all women in their quest to live a heart healthy life. Together, we can do it and make a difference.”

Ms Julianne Schell, Newton County Health Department’s Clinic Administrator, says. “The Health Department is pleased to be teaming with WomenHeart in hosting Ms. Chapman’s important presentation. The Health Department wants to get information to the public in advance of the development of chronic diseases. This presentation not only addresses management of heart disease once diagnosed, it also covers how to prevent the development. Anyone in the Newton County area can benefit from hearing Ms. Chapman’s personal story and the healthy living tips she will share.”
