The 2nd Annual Red Lipstick and Cocktails Event
In 2017, I created Red Lipstick and Cocktails in an effort to bring social awareness to heart disease and stroke within the African American community. Growing frustrated with the increased mortality rate and lack of knowledge within our community surrounding the risk factors of heart disease and stoke, I could not stay silent in longer!
Heart disease and stroke are the number ONE killers of women especially African American women in the United States. Symptoms often go unnoticed because they are coupled with other ailments like Hypercholesterolemia, and Hypertension. Knowing your numbers, and frequent visits to your medical physician are two ways to decrease your chances of heart disease and stroke. Listen yall, we are NOT our family health history! We have the tools, and knowledge to debunk those statistics. Lets make healthy cute again!
