YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Heart health for women was the focus of an event held on Thursday at the Covelli Centre.

The Humility of Mary Health Partners have been doing this as a public service for 11 years now. Hundreds of women were getting free screenings and information on a range of health issues.

Organizers said it’s a day where women can be the priority.

“I think sometimes women do put themselves last in terms of, they take care of their husbands, their families and everyone else, and they tend to leave themselves out,” said RN and Women’s Heart Day co-chairwoman, Mary Ann Cashier.

Cashier also said that interest in the event is growing every year, and people often return with stories of how they changed their lives since attending.
