Albany-  Heart disease is the number one killer of American women and Friday women in Albany dressed in red to call attention to heart disease.

The ballroom at the Hilton Garden Inn was a sea of red for the fourth annual Go Red for Women luncheon. Since only 21 percent of women believe that heart disease is their number one health threat, but today attendees learned a little more about what they need to do so they're not at risk.

"The biggest thing they need to do is to take care of themselves, have their annual physicals and know their numbers, know their blood pressure, know their cholesterol levels and what can be done to help cholesterol if it is high," said Sharon King, Go Red for Women Chairwoman.

Guests heard personal stories from south Georgia women affected by heart disease. They also dined on a heart health lunch.
