Heart disease is a growing problem, and early detection can be the key to saving lives.
That’s the message from Joanne Allen, President of Novant Health Kernersville Medical Center, and this year’s chairwoman of Guilford County’s Go Red for Women campaign.
“We evaluated data and health assessments from the Guilford County Health Department, and what we found is that heart disease and stroke are the leading cause of death among men and women in Guilford County,” said Allen. “That’s why we’re teaming with the American Heart Association to offer free screenings such as the one at Macy’s Wendover location in Greensboro on Saturday, January 18, 2014.”

The Big Eat Has Returned. Join us in Downtown Winston-Salem, January: 7,14, 21, 28.
Back for its sixth year, the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership and participating downtown restaurants are proud to present the return of “The Big Eat.” Every Tuesday night, beginning January 7 until January 28, more than 30 great downtown restaurants will offer 50 percent discounts off of their signature dishes.
There has been such a positive response to the Big Eat promotion since its inception 2009, that it was a no-brainer to bring back the event in 2014. The Downtown Partnership received numerous e-mails and phone calls from people who participated in the last five years and who were asking to bring it back for 2014.
A list of participating downtown establishments as well as the signature dish for each Tuesday can be found at http://www.dwsp.org/bigeat.htm
