Teams now forming for Atlanta Heart Walk
The facts are disheartening: One of every 2.5 deaths is a result of heart disease. Each year one out of 2.4 women die of heart disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for anyone over the age of 25.
Help Emory Healthcare and Emory University fight cardiovascular disease and stroke by participating in the 2007 Atlanta Heart Walk on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 9 a.m. in Piedmont Park.
To join the Emory team, please visit www.emory heartwalk.org and click on “Join Team” next to the team of choice.

For questions regarding the Heart Walk or to become a team captain, contact Sheryl Marbach at sheryl.marbach@emoryhealthcare.org or 404-778-7311.
