Mary Butler DAR Hears Presentation on Women and Heart Disease

LACONIA — The Mary Butler Chapter of DAR met Monday, June 16 at the Gilford Community Church. The guest speaker for the meeting was Audra Burns, Director of Communications for the American Heart Association of New Hampshire.

One of the key missions of this organization is to raise awareness of heart disease among women and the fact that heart disease is the number one killer of women. Heart disease among women is such a serious problem it is presently the focus of three major ongoing research grants. There are also dedicated research facilities at Dartmouth. To date the Heart Association has reduced death from heart disease by 8.8% and has reduced death from strokes by 10%, but more remains to be done.

The American Heart Association advocates guidelines for scientists and nutritionists and encourages women to read food labels. Women are also encouraged to know their cholesterol levels as well as their blood pressure. They need to follow through on symptoms, listen to their bodies, and live a heart healthy lifestyle which includes sodium reduction and regular exercise. Heart Walks are sponsored by the Heart Association. A Go Red Luncheon takes place in March at Dartmouth.

The next meeting of the Mary Butler Chapter of DAR will take place Monday, July 21 at the Gilford Community Church at 1:30. The presentation will be on Flags of the Revolutionary War.

Visitors and perspective members are welcome at meetings. For more information contact Mary Flaherty at 603-524-0723.
