Knoxville (WVLT) - Friday is go red for women day.
To mark the occasion, dozens of Knoxville area women are participating in the American Heart Association's go red for women luncheon inside the city county building.
The luncheon includes special educational sessions, physician question and answer sessions, and even interactive galleries.
Sharon Dicorato supports the cause and says it's very important to know the facts when it comes to heart disease, "Heart disease runs in my family, my uncle suffered a severe stroke and my aunt has had a pacemaker and so a lot of those problems to run in my family and so it's personal as well as I really want to inspire other women to take control of their lives."
Heart disease is the number one killer of american women.
