ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Women in Albany ate some tasty food while learning about heart health.    

Friday is the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women.

The Dougherty County Health Department hosted this event to teach women recipes that can help prevent heart disease or improve it for those suffering with heart disease. 

"It's traditional been a man's issue, but we're finding more and more females suffer with this and they're symptoms are usually different for men," said Sue Ewings.

Along with food samples, participants walked away with a booklet of heart healthy recipes.
