COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) - State Senator Shannon Jones (R–Springboro) joined fellow women legislators in the fight against women’s number one killer, heart disease. The women united to raise awareness for the disease, which affects approximately 42 million women in the United States.
“More women die of cardiovascular disease than all forms of cancer combined,” said Jones. “Women’s heart disease symptoms are different from men’s and are often hidden or misunderstood. Together we can educate our daughters, sisters, mothers and friends about heart disease prevention and treatment."
This is the 10th year of the Go Red For Women movement. As a result of increased awareness and research, more than 627,000 women have been saved from heart diseases and 330 fewer are dying each day.
Senator Shannon Jones represents Ohio’s 7th Senate District, which encompasses all of Warren County and portions of Butler and Hamilton Counties.
