Two women will be honored as ‘Women with Heart’ on Tuesday

Two Smith County women who overcame heart disease with help from Trinity Mother Frances Lewis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital will be recognized Tuesday during a special program at Rose Heights Church.

Barbara Davis Staley and Joan Nash are among the women recognized as “women with heart.” The selection process was conducted from candidates gathered in November.

According to a report by the American Heart Association, heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular diseases account for about half of the deaths of American women. Additionally, one in three women over the age of 65 has some type of heart disease. It is no longer considered a disease that only affects men.

The Women With Heart event aims to educate attendees about the risks of heart disease.

The event will also feature food, fellowship, door prizes and an information booth. It begins at Rose Heights Church (2120 Old Omen Road) at 5:30 p.m.

The dinner is free and open to the public. Due to limited seating, organizers are asking attendees to reserve their spot by calling 903-606-3627.

Fit City Day in the Park returns on February 27th

Fit City Day in the Park will be held at Waldert Park, 701 W. 32nd St., on February 27th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There will be a 1-mile Wellness Walk, East Texas Plank Challenge, vendor booths, healthy snacks and drinks, and Tyler ISD elementary students will compete for a $500 donation to their school.

The event was originally scheduled for November 7th at Bergfeld Park, but was canceled due to inclement weather.

Previous Fit City Day in the Park events were held in 2011 and 2012. Since the Fit City Coalition was formed in 2010, the event has served as an opportunity to introduce health and wellness resources to the community.
