FANWOOD, NJ — Women (and men, too) across the country showed support for women's heart health education by participating in the American Heart Association's annual "Go Red for Women" campaign on Friday, Feb. 2. The effort calls attention to heart disease, the silent killer, which leads to the deaths of more women than any other cause. 

Chelsea Senior Living in Fanwood hosted its annual women's heart health expo, which featured blood pressure screenings, chair massages, heart-healthy foods, information about the benefits of acupuncture, a yoga demonstration and free blood pressure screenings by the Fanwood Rescue Squad.

Fanwood Mayor Colleen Mahr, who is also the acting Union County Democratic Committee chair, has spoken at the event in each of the past four years since its inception
