February is Heart Month

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A “ladies night out” for hundreds of women taught an important lesson Friday night about healthy lifestyles.

“The Taste of Go Red” hosted by Delta Sigma Theta sorority focused on reducing sodium intake to prevent heart diseases, especially among African American women.

Go Red volunteer Rhonda Hall told 22News by eating well and living well, women can take proactive steps to prevent heart disease and stroke.

Rhonda Hall of Springfield told 22News, “I am proof that change is your cure. And I am just here to let everybody know that you can make that change. Just because the doctor said this is what you have doesn’t mean that it has to stay that way.”

“That they will be encouraged and support one another to live well, to love themselves and to live a healthy lifestyle,” said Vira Smith-Winfree of the Delta Sigma Theta Alumnae Chapter.
