LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Thursday Woodland Heights Medical Center hosted their 9th annual Women in Red Luncheon.

The annual luncheon promotes awareness about heart disease among women.

Cardiologists say some risk factors for heart disease includes obesity, unhealthy diet, smoking and high blood pressure. Officials say that screening early on and healthy lifestyle can  help them avoid the disease.

"More women die from heart disease than men and this is something that commonly we don't realize and we don't proactively screened and treated for heart disease and woman," said Dr. Musa Khan, Cardiologist.

Health officials say taking at least 30 minutes a day to exercise can go a long way in preventing heart disease.
