NORTH JACKSON — In celebration of Heart Health Month, some Jackson residents celebrated with breakfast Wednesday morning. At the Jackson Country Club, women with heart disease spoke about their experiences with fighting the condition. Stories and warning signs to prevent future cases all were exchanged with members of Jackson’s Go Red for Women initiative. We spoke with a doctor who says it is important to learn about the condition. “It’s time to learn more about heart disease in women,” said Dr. Sandra Dee, an interventional cardiologist at the Jackson Clinic. “No one is spared.” Heart.org says Heart Health Month isn’t just for adults — children also are encouraged to learn about heart disease prevention.
