Central Leader - - NEWS -

Auck­land women are in­vited to help the Heart Foun­da­tion’s re­search into women’s heart dis­ease by at­tend­ing their Go Red for Women break­fast on Septem­ber 6.

The fundrais­ing break­fast at the Crowne Plaza fea­tures great speak­ers.

Go Red for Women pa­tron and heart at­tack sur­vivor Dame Jenny Ship­ley will speak about her ex­pe­ri­ences and Na­dia Lim will pro­vide a cook­ing demon­stra­tion.

Re­searcher Natalie Walker will talk about how heart dis­ease af­fects women.

Tick­ets, $55 per per­son or $500 a ta­ble, in­clude a heart healthy break­fast.

Over 200 Auck­land women died of heart dis­ease in 2010.

‘‘Too of­ten women think of heart dis­ease as be­ing a man’s dis­ease,’’ Auck­land Heart Health ad­vo­cate Naadira De­sai says.
