Special to The Chronicle 

More than 250 women from 10 black churches in Winston-Salem came together on Sunday, Feb. 21, for an afternoon of sisterhood, heart health and sharing.

In celebration of American Heart Month and the eighth year that Winston-Salem has gone red, Novant Health, the Office of Mayor Allen Joines, and the American Heart Association invited women from different Winston-Salem congregations to come together to learn about how they can prevent heart disease. These women were charged to bring heart health information back to their congregations.

This free event included a women’s heart health question-and-answer panel with physicians from various disciplines; a sampling of different teas and heart-healthy appetizer; door prizes; and a true spirit of Winston-Salem sisters helping each other to love their hearts.

This event was part of the “Go Red For Women” initiative in Forsyth County in partnership with Novant Health, the Greater Triad Go Red For Women Wellness Partner.

The churches represented were: 

*United Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church

*First Baptist Church

*St. Peter’s Church & World Outreach Center

*Goler Memorial AME Zion

*Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church

*Emmanuel Baptist Church

*Phillips Chapel Missionary Baptist Church

*Solid Rock Missionary Baptist Church

*Exodus United Baptist Church

*Saint James Missionary Baptist Church
