VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

 In honor of National Heart Health month... a free heart health expo will be held at VSU tomorrow.

The event is sponsored by the Dasher Memorial Heart Center at South Georgia Medical Center and 100 Black Men of Valdosta.

Appointments for some of the tests are already full... but that doesn't mean you shouldn't attend.

"Heart disease is the number one killer in the world and it is the leading killer in the united states as well," said Marie Sims, Community Events Coordinator at South Georgia Medical Center. "South Georgia is in the stroke belt, we have a higher incidence of obesity here as well as diabetes."

The event is from nine until noon tomorrow at the University Center at V-S-U.
