The free brown-bag presentation offered locals a chance to learn about preventive measures at the the Shawnee County Courthouse Commission Chambers.
Public health educator Kathy Summers gave the lecture. She said that one in three women have some form of heart disease, and greater awareness is needed.
And not far away, locals sported their red gear at the annual Kansas Red Ribbon award luncheon at the Pozez Education Center.
The oldest and largest drug prevention program in the country used its state's chapter to hand out eight awards to local schools.
